Nora's Home Community Resources
Nora’s Home will serve patients receiving transplant care in the Texas Medical Center in Houston. We know that our guests and all transplant patients and caregivers will face many challenges. Other visitors may want information about organ donation, end stage organ diseases, treatment options in general or transplant specifically. We hope that links to these community resources will be helpful as you search for answers and for assistance.
