Transplant patients often face many struggles during their wait—for some people the wait for a transplant can be months to several years. During that time, keeping up with work and personal schedules can be challenging. The support received from family, friends and community, including the workplace, can make a tremendous difference in a journey toward recovery. Likewise, a supportive workplace/employer is essential to the living donor’s experience prior to surgery and recovery. Some donor families have shared how during the time of their loss, their employer showed kindness and support when learning their employee’s loved one was a donor.
We invite you to tell us how your employer helped you through your transplant or donation experience.
Winning employers of our Donate Life NC Employer Recognition Award will receive a Donate Life glass award, printed certificate and a personal presentation during Donate Life Month (April).
