Bridging the Gap
Transplant is just a word until you are faced with it. My mentor made me realize I was not alone. Here was someone who had walked the path I was now on. A guide to what may lie ahead and a constant source of encouragement.
-Brian, Kidney and Pancreas Transplant Recipient
GTF supports my transplant patients in ways beyond what hospitals are able to do. GTF services assist patients in obtaining essential medications and maintaining a successful transplant. For this reason, I continue to support GTF and the programs they provide.

Before my transplant, I would have never imagined the direction my life could take. I am so grateful to the transplant community for giving me the opportunity to succeed in many different aspects of my life!

After receiving my heart transplant, I enrolled in the JumpStart Program and received financial support to take Certified Nursing Assistant Classes. Now, I have a career I would never have been able to achieve without the JumpStart Program and assistance from GTF.
