A patchwork connecting the past to the present

Honoring those who made the decision to give life when leaving their own, the Lifeline of Ohio Donor Memorial Quilts connect the past to the present.

Each panel memorializes the individuals who have passed on the Gift of Life to others through the medical miracle of transplantation. Each “memory square” is a tribute to the altruistic human spirit that embodies organ, eye and tissue donation. We currently have twelve Donor Memorial Quilts, created by donor families.
