Telling the story of donation

The atrium in the Lifeline of Ohio office features an ever-changing memorial installation featuring 48 shadowboxes. Nearly two-thirds of the framed tributes highlight individual stories of donors through photos, letters and/or mementos selected by donor families. Each inset box memorializes a donor while outset boxes feature photos of transplant recipients.

The boxes serve as both a memorial and a celebration of the ripple started by each gift given through donation. View our digital shadowboxes below to see a complete gallery of all who have been featured over the years.
