Donor Families – The Gift of Life and Hope

In facilitating the donation process, Lifeline of Ohio is privileged to touch the lives of so many caring and compassionate families whose loved one has shared the Gifts of Life through organ, eye and tissue donation. Likewise, we are inspired by the energy and gratitude of those individuals who have received a second chance at life because of a stranger’s generosity. Their stories tell the powerful story of donation – of lives intertwined in a legacy of life.

Bereavement Services

Lifeline of Ohio’s Bereavement Services Department offers a thirteen-month aftercare program providing supportive resources for donor families at eight different intervals throughout the grief journey. You’ll receive items such as a donation outcome family letter, grief materials, cards, resources on ways to honor your loved one and other tokens of support. All items are mailed to the address on file.

Losing a loved one is difficult. Lifeline of Ohio is here to help you for the thirteen-month aftercare program and beyond.
