Donor and Family Support

Generations U.S. often works with families during the loss of a loved one who chose donation for medical research, education and training.  

Below are resources for registered donors and donor families who would like additional emotional, spiritual and mental support.  These groups and publications are not affiliated with Generations U.S., rather serve as information to support friends and family through grief.
