Officially formed in May of 1988, New Hearts Transplant Support Group is a 501(c)3 non-profit, all volunteer organization, incorporated in Nebraska. Our members include transplant recipients and their families, transplant candidates or potential candidates, donor families, medical personnel, social workers, clergy and others interested in transplantation and promoting donor awareness.
Although our name is New Hearts, this group serves people with all types of organ and tissue transplants—heart, lung, liver, pancreas, kidney, small bowel and cornea. As one liver recipient said, “Anyone who receives the chance of a transplant receives, in a sense, a New Heart, regardless of organ or tissue—a new outlook, a new opportunity, a new life.”
We offer the opportunity to meet and share with other transplant families, to learn important transplant-related information from our guest speakers, to honor donors and their families, and to promote donor awareness in the community. And, we’re a fun group, grateful for the Gift of Life!
