Individuals in the Community are critical to the promotion and public awareness efforts regarding the need to register as an organ and tissue donor. TGLN works with community volunteers and various organizations to provide the necessary information and support.
Preparations for a transplant often begin long before the surgery to replace the damaged or diseased organ. A coordinated effort by transplant surgeons, coordinators, social workers, psychologists, the patient and donor family, among many others, is vital to ensure a successful surgery.
