Who's Your Rainbow?
It’s the start of one of our favorite months of the year: National Donate Life Month! Every April, we join families across the country in celebrating how organ donation saves lives and transforms futures.
The 2018 Donate Life Month theme recognizes how organ donors become “a rainbow in someone else’s cloud” by creating a bridge between one family’s mourning and another’s healing. “It takes both light and rain to create the gift of a rainbow” – the same can be said for the gift of life.
Submit Your Story
All month long, we’ll be sharing your organ donation stories through our Touched By Transplant series on this blog.
Whether you are pre- or post-transplant, we want to hear about your experiences and see the images that represent your journey.
Submit your story on or before April 20 for your chance to win a special gift pack from Help Hope Live and have your campaign featured on the homepage of our new website!

Celebrating New Life
Spring is a time for new beginnings. Did you or someone you love recently receive the gift of life? We recognize transplant recipients every month on our website. Check out our February and March transplant families and let us know if we missed your milestone. Congratulations on beginning your post-transplant recovery journey!
Here’s hoping April showers bring May flowers (and lots of rainbows!). Happy spring!Written by Emily Progin
