In 2014, Jill Dillon, living kidney donor, and her recipient Sara Solinsky, along with Sara's cousin Kathy Gehrke saw the need for more awareness for organ and tissue donation in the central Wisconsin area. Out of this need, Central Wisconsin Gift of Life was born. The group has grown considerably and now includes organ and tissue donor families, organ recipients, living donors, and others who are simply passionate about spreading the word of the need for organ and tissue donors.
Through our partnership with the University of Wisconsin Organ and Tissue Donation, we have been able to raise awareness and funds for worthy causes such as the UW Donor Education Fund and the Restoring Hope Transplant House in Middleton, Wisconsin.
We welcome you to our website and hope you can join us for one of our events or choose to get involved in some other way. In the meantime, please register to be an organ and tissue donor at www.donatelifewisconsin.org.
