of life of transplant recipients, their
families, people on waiting lists,
support people, living donors, and
the families of organ and tissue do-
nors.

and a network of chapters, TRIO
serves its members in our mission

and Advocacy.








Transplant Support Group
Please come, check us out and
become as involved or not in-
volved as you want. We are a
great group of people and want
to expand. You would be most
welcome.

Meetings commence at 6:30
with a meal followed by any
announcements and/or pertinent
information. Next is a speaker
or movie. The meeting closes
with a round table discussion.
We must clean up and vacate
the building at 8:30pm.

We as recipients have a
common purpose, to deal with
post transplant conditions of
our bodies, and take medica-
tions to keep us alive.

By attending a meeting you
no longer feel alone and can
share with other support
people, candidates and reci-
pients.
