Please call 602-277-2661 or email info@TransplantAZ.org to register and receive the Zoom meeting code.

Mentor Program

Throughout the transplant journey of the evaluation process, waiting for the call, having the surgery, recovering and then adjusting to a “new normal” life after transplant, can be a relief from illness, but also be emotional and stressful.  Support from friends, family, and the transplant center team can help, but talking to someone who has been through a similar situation is the best inspiration for keeping a good attitude to realize positive outcomes. A trained mentor can be a source of reassurance and support for anyone at any point in the transplant journey: preparing for an evaluation, candidates on the waitlist, recipients, caregivers, family members, friends or supporters.
