The American Transplant Foundation launched its new young professionals group, the Transplant Leadership Council, with a party at The Jet Hotel in downtown Denver on June 28, 2011. More than 40 young professionals and supporters attended to learn more about the Council, which provides emergency financial assistance to transplant patients in need.
During the party, guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres and got to hear from Steve Farber, kidney recipient and Founder of the American Transplant Foundation, Brian Cerise, a living kidney donor and Council member, and Brad Farber and Susan Fakharzadeh, two of the Transplant Leadership Council’s Founding Co-Chairs, about how their lives have been touched by organ and tissue donation and how the Council will directly benefit patients. Special thanks to the 23 individuals who have become Founding Members of the Council, pledging to raise more than $15,000 for the Patient Assistance Program in 2011!
