American Transplant Foundation Co-Founder Steve Farber believed that no one should die while waiting for a lifesaving transplant. Through his own struggle of trying to find a living donor due to kidney failure, he realized how much needed to be done to help save lives here in America. This inspired him to establish the American Transplant Foundation together with Heidi Heltzel and Dr. Laurence Chan. The American Transplant Foundation goes beyond donor awareness and provides real help to transplant patients and their loved ones.
Steve passed away on March 4, 2020, but his legacy and vision of improving the transplant system continues.
The American Transplant Foundation is excited to announce the 2022 recipients of the “Steven W. Farber Transplant Award Fund”, created in Steve’s honor to carry on his legacy.
This fund has been developed and brought to fruition by our Board of Directors and is used to provide scholarship awards for students who are interested in pursuing a career in transplant and are enrolled in the School of Medicine at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus.
