TheInspiration BehindtheMission

South Carolina donor heroes and their families are the inspiration behind the mission of organ, eye, and tissue donation. Once a family leaves the hospital after a loss, they don’t leave the We Are Sharing Hope SC family.

Our SHSC Donor Family Services Aftercare team is comprised of compassionate professionals who journey alongside our donor families, offering support and education in the days, weeks, months, and even years after donation.

Our team is poised to meet families where they are at in their grief.

Every family experiences loss differently. We offer opportunities for donor families to meet others walking a similar path through ceremonial events, speaking engagements and community get togethers. Participating in local, regional and national events such as the Donate Life Rose Parade Float and the Transplant Games of America offers families inspirational moments to see the legacies of their loved ones recognized for their selfless gift of organ, eye and tissue donation.

We connect donor families and recipients when families are ready.

Correspondence between donor families and recipients is something that families may find to be a healing aspect of their donation journey. Our SHSC Aftercare team facilitates the written correspondence between both sides and offers support if and when families are ever ready to meet their loved one’s recipients.

Donor family support is always available.
