Without the organ donor, there is no story, no hope, no transplant. But when there is an organ donor, life springs from death, sorrow turns to hope and a terrible loss becomes a gift.

Registration guidelines:

Living Donors are very important.

Read June Moreno’s and her journey as a living donor.

Pre and Post-transplant recipients are often faced with financial hardships. If you are pre transplant, on the waiting list or post-transplant you may qualify for assistance.

Our Foundation’s goal is to educate the public about the urgent growing need of Organ, Eye and Tissue Donations. To eliminate the myths which discourages our communities from registering to be organ, eye and tissue Donors. We will provide resources and case management support services to pre and post- transplant patients and their families who are unable to provide for their medical needs.

Types of assistance offered:

  • Housing
  • Transportation
  • Travel arrangements
  • Medical copays
  • Child care
  • Pet sitting
  • Gas cards
  • Food cards

* Needs will be provided per Case per approval from the Foundations Board of Directors.

Why Donate to The James Worley Collin Conedy Foundation?

The costs of transplant procedures vary greatly depending on the hospitals and organ types. These costs start to add up even before the transplant itself. Patients often must rely on several sources to help pay for their medical and non-medical costs of pre- and post-transplantation. This is where The James Worley Collin Conedy Foundation comes in. Donations are tax deductible.
