Can I contact the donor family?
It is natural for some families to want to thank the donor family. Confidentially is very important and some donor families do not want to have contact with the family of the person who receives the donated organ.
If you would like to thank the donor family, the best way is to write a letter without putting in any identifying information. You may like to ask your transplant coordinator to help you with the letter. They can then pass it on to the donor coordinator who dealt with the donor family and can find out if they want to receive the letter.
