One year after the transplant, Sharol and Marlene sought to meet each other. In an ironic twist of fate, the two found they lived just two miles apart.
Donor Family Community Facebook Group
Donate Life Northwest’s Donor Family Community Group is a closed Facebook group intended to provide a private forum for donor family members to connect with and support one another along their grief journey. The group is moderated by Donate Life Northwest and Lions VisionGift staff and select donor family volunteers. However, members can participate 24/7.
As a member of this closed group, you will have the opportunity to introduce yourself and your loved one. Your personal stories can be healing and helpful to other families who have had a loved one become a donor. Grief manifests in so many different ways for all of us; this page will allow you to learn about your own grief experience and to share it with others. You will be able to experience compassion from others with a similar experience, post your own feelings, ask questions or be silently present.
