American Transplant Foundation held its first ever mixer at Denver’s Pizza Republica on September 19th. The casual social event was an opportunity for supporters of all of the foundation’s programs and other members of the local transplant community to meet, share their stories, and enter to win raffle prizes. The list of attendees included ten who are living organ donors or transplant recipients!

In addition to dinner and discussions, guests signed a giant ‘Thank You’ card to two living kidney donors. This card will be presented at a later event to honor them for each giving the Gift of Life. 

Also in attendance were transplant center coordinators, nurses, social workers, and doctors; American Transplant Foundation Board Members; Team Transplant cycling team members; Transplant Leadership Council (TLC) Founding Members; and several outstanding volunteers — thank you so much to Chris, Alison, Jill, and Anne for making the event a success!

One of the honored guests, a college student and heart transplant recipient, made this unforgettable statement:

“Sometimes, I feel like I’m in my 60s as I always think and talk about insurance, coverage, meds. What a relief it is to be at an event where I can just have fun and meet people who went through similar experiences and see how happy, outgoing, and welcoming they are.”

We thank everyone who attended and are grateful for all donations that were made. Please consider attending our next social event on October 2nd which will benefit our Patient Assistance Program.
