Guidelines and tips for writing to organ recipients
Many times, families want to write to the recipients of their loved ones’ organs to inquire how the recipients are doing and to share about their loved ones. Often, families have found that communicating with recipients can be healing. Lifeline of Ohio is here to support you in any way we can.
Some ideas on what you can include in a letter:
- Only share your first name (do not include your last name, city, home address or phone number)
- Information about yourself and your loved one (age, interests, hobbies and/or family information)
- Special memories with your loved one
- Photo of your loved one
- Questions you have for the recipient
