Transplant Australia welcomes membership and participation of all family members of deceased donors. In recognition of the amazing gift you have given, we would like to offer all donor families honorary membership of Transplant Australia.
Transplant exists to make the most of the second chance that organ and tissue donation gives, and to remember and honor organ donors.
We strive to raise community awareness of the need for organ and tissue donation, and invite family members of deceased donors to be a part of the work we do here at Transplant Australia.
Honoring and remembering organ donors plays a large part in the Australian Transplant Games with family members competing in the supporter events and medal presentation ceremonies. The Donor Family Shield is presented at the Australian Transplant Games Gala Dinner, and donor families and living donors are invited to lead the Games Parade.
We invite all donor families to contribute a patch to our Donor Family Quilt in honour of your loved-one.
In addition, each State branch holds special events in recognition of the gifts of life and sight.
