Hi, and welcome!
As you may know, The Living Legacy Foundation of Maryland facilitates the donation and recovery of human organs and tissues for transplantation and research in the state of Maryland, with the exception of Prince George’s, Charles, and Montgomery counties. (Those counties are covered by Washington Regional Transplant Community, another organ procurement organization).
As one of Maryland’s federally designated organ procurement organizations (OPO), we provide advocacy, family support and comprehensive public and professional education, and are committed to organizational excellence to enhance the organ and tissue donation and distribution processes.
What this means is that we do much more than just facilitate transplants, and by reading this blog, you’ll have a chance to find out all about our many programs and all the cool things we get to be involved with while promoting our cause. We will keep you up-to-date with what’s going on here at The LLF, as well as in the donation community, so we hope you check back often!
We love to hear from people who care as much about organ, eye and tissue donation as we do, so please feel free to comment on our posts, or visit us on our other social media networks:
