I’m pleased to present Midwest Transplant Network’s 2020 annual report to share these results with you as our dedicated partners in saving and enhancing lives. Reflecting on the past year of uncertainty, adversity and triumph amid tragedy, it brings me joy knowing the positive impact donation brings to so many donor families, as well as recipients. In the report, you will find measures demonstrating our many successes throughout the year, as well as our steady growth over the past five years. Additionally, we have included personal stories from some of the transplant warriors and donor heroes we are honored to support and celebrate.
The selflessness and generosity of our donors and their families allows us to give hope and share life to those awaiting a transplant. Your partnership and support make this lifesaving work possible.
Although we have made great improvements over the years and cared for more organ donors than ever in 2020, there are still so many in need of a transplant. On behalf of our staff and board members, thank you for the vital role you play in Midwest Transplant Network’s community. We are endlessly grateful for your support of organ, eye and tissue donation, as well as the tireless work you do in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
