LifePoint is now Sharing Hope SC
South Carolina's Organ and Tissue Recovery Service
Our leadership is at the core of our business, a team that has been with us for many years, serving the people in and around South Carolina. When former President and CEO Nancy Kay founded Sharing Hope SC in 1984, she founded it with the hope of advancing organ, eye and tissue donation transplantation and research in South Carolina and the United States. One of the first ten agencies that offered organ procurement services in the United States, Sharing Hope SC started off as a small organization with four employees doing primarily kidney recovery and has since grown to 105 employees doing kidney, heart, liver, lung, and tissue procurement. Certified by the federal government, Sharing Hope SC is the designated Organ Procurement Organization (OPO) for organ recovery services in South Carolina and actively provides organ and tissue donor services to 62 Hospitals throughout the state.
Together we inspire our community, offer hope and change lives through the gift of organ, eye and tissue donation.
Every individual embraces organ, eye and tissue donation to save and enhance lives.
Compassion – the ability to recognize and the genuine desire to alleviate the distress or misfortune of others.
