And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
New Life Society provides free resources to organ transplant recipients and their families.
Our purpose is to provide economic, educational, social, and psychological assistance to be instrumental in helping to achieve successful outcomes for patients receiving organ transplants, from the time they are placed on the list to their return to mainstream life. We also advocate for the urgent need to register Arizonans as organ and tissue donors.Social Support - We create and foster a spirit of association and camaraderie among the members of this society, host a weekly social support group for recipients, their families or caregivers, and facilitate relevant continuing education for the transplant community. Financial Support - We help fund housing and transportation needs associated with transplantation to those needing financial assistance, bridge financial gaps related to prescribed medications and copays, and offer resources and knowledge of insurance and reimbursement claims. Advocacy - We advocate for organ transplantation and raise awareness of the need for Arizonans to register as organ donors through our online presence, our membership and public events. Promote Healthy Lifestyles - We encourage organ transplant recipients to be involved in Transplant Team Arizona and DonateLife Transplant Games to demonstrate the effectiveness of the transplantation process, assist recipients with the costs associated with participation in the Games, and prove transplantation is not a disability but a second chance at a full and productive life.
