Completed cards should be returned to LifeLink using the self-addressed envelope that will be provided. Once we receive your completed cards, LifeLink will then forward your communication onto the organ transplant center(s) where your loved one’s organ recipient(s) received their respective organ transplant. The organ transplant center(s) will then forward your card directly to the intended organ recipient(s). This process can take several weeks, so the earlier your holiday card order is received the better able LifeLink is to ensure that all cards are delivered to the organ recipient(s) in time.
Please be aware that you may not receive an immediate response from your loved one’s organ recipient(s), or a response at all. The donation and transplantation process is a highly emotional experience for all involved and, on occasion, some organ recipients feel unable to find the “right” words to express their gratitude for the gift of life they received and hesitate to respond to their donor family. Please know that regardless of if/what follow up communication is received from your loved one’s organ recipient(s), they have a deep appreciation for the gift of life they received because of your loved one.
