Our Gift of Life Celebration is an annual event for transplant recipients, their families, donor family members, living donors, and transplant professionals. The event features medical staff from Mayo Clinic speaking on topics of interest to transplant recipients. Lunch, music, a game of Transplant Trivia, and a beautiful butterfly release all highlight our day.
The Gift of Life Celebration is held in mid-October and is accompanied by Tribute to Life, a donor recognition ceremony hosted by LifeQuest Organ Recovery Services. Donor families, living donors, and transplant recipients are all invited to attend. Both events are held at Palms Presbyterian Church in Jacksonville Beach.
Each event provide an excellent opportunity to renew friendships and to meet donor family members and recipients. Watch for details as they become available each summer and an online photo gallery following each event, right here on JaxTransplant.org.
Thank you to everyone who came out to the Gift of Life Celebration!
