Donor families and recipients sometimes make the personal choice of corresponding with each other. When that happens, LifeCenter Northwest and a transplant center social worker can facilitate initial contact. Once both sides have agreed to contact, we can work to put them in touch directly.

Correspondence Workshops

The Aftercare team hosts monthly virtual Correspondence Workshops that provide opportunities for donor families and recipients to learn about the writing process, see sample letters, hear from others who have written or are thinking of writing, and ask questions. There will be a short presentation followed by a Q&A session, and some months we will welcome a guest speaker who can provide additional insight regarding their experience with the letter writing process. These workshops are typically held the last Tuesday of each month in the evening. For more information or to join an upcoming workshop, please contact us at
