I am a relative of a recipient of an organ

To receive a lifesaving organ is to receive the gift of life. Many who receive an organ go from experiencing a life threatening illness to being in almost full health. However, life with a new organ often involves lifelong drug treatment that can cause various side-affects.

The rate of survival after receiving an organ is increasing. Statistics from 2006 show that a 5-year survival rate is 71-85%, for all types of organs.
