Living Organ Donor Resources


My name is Heather. I am from east central Illinois. I donated a kidney to my Dad on 12-1-99 in Chicago. Since donating, my Dad and I have a special bond we did not have before. I hope to continue helping on this site, to support and help others who would like to donate, already have donated, and those who were wanting to donate and could not.

In Loving Memory of Heather Roberts for her devotion in helping countless individuals along their journey to transplant. She had the foresight to create this forum back in 2000 after she had donated her kidney to her father. Heather was tragically killed by a drunk driver Oct.21 2017. Please visit Heather's blog
