Give Back this Holiday Season at our Tree of Life

This December, to make the holidays a little brighter for transplant patients who are facing extreme financial hardship, American Transplant Foundation started the Tree of Life initiative virtually.

Read patients' stories here to learn how they could use assistance during the holidays to buy presents for their loved ones, afford groceries for a holiday meal, or enjoy a rare evening out. 

We are pleased to offer this opportunity for anyone to help brighten the holidays for a patient's family. All donations received will bring holiday cheer and hope.

If you could like to help, you can make a donation of $20-$500, which we will give to patients.

We believe that everyone should feel loved and appreciated during one of the most wonderful times of the year. Please help us spread joy and light this holiday season by adopting one of the many families featured on our Tree of Life.

Annual American Transplant Foundation Holiday Party!

Thank you to all who joined us at our
Annual Holiday Party! 

We are honored that we were joined by friends, family, living donors, transplant recipients, volunteers, Board Members, and supporters at our annual Holiday Party! This evening was filled with laughs, lots of food, and giving back. 

As always, we celebrated all of the lives saved through transplantation, and looked to the future as we prepare to save even more lives in 2020

All of our honored guests had a chance to adopt Patient Assistance Grant Recipients at our Tree of Life! Because of their help, almost all of our Patient Assistance Grant Recipients will be receiving a special gift in the mail this holiday season. 

We were also joined by Denver Poet, Devan Kingsford and Tarot Card Reader, Diana Fox who allowed our guests to have some more fun. Delicious appetizers were provided by Private Chef, Steve Grindley. 

We would like to thank all of our guests, volunteers, Devan, Diana, and Chef Steve for making this such a fun and eventful evening! 

A special 'THANK YOU' goes out to our wonderful hosts, Dr. Mike Shomaker and Leslie Shomaker. These two have opened their home to American Transplant Foundation year after year to support the most vulnerable living organ donors and transplant recipients. 

2019 was quite a year! We're looking forward to what the future holds in 2020.
