In honor of Donate Life month, Memorial Hermann Heart & Vascular Institute hosted its first “Celebrating the Gift” event at which transplant patients and their families show their appreciation for donors and their families. Doctors, staff, recipients, and donor family members shared emotional personal stories about illness and organ failure, strength, and gratitude for the gift of life.

Nora’s Home was so proud to be a part of the beautiful event. Organ recipients and family members painted tiles as a testament to their loved ones, their experience and their donors.
