Rebecca Simon, MSW
Family Resource Program Coordinator
Pacific NW Transplant Bank
Have you wondered about communicating with your donor family after transplant? If you’re pre-transplant, would you like to know how to be prepared to write that letter to your donor family? Rebecca Simon is the intermediary between organ recipients and donor families, and will answer all your questions about the issues facing both donor families and recipients when considering whether, when, and how to communicate via the Pacific NW Transplant bank.
Wondering how donor organs and tissues make to their recipients? Rebecca will also tell us how the donated organs and tissues are procured and allocated to recipients in our region.
