Each year, the lives of hundreds of men, women and children in Maryland and beyond are saved or improved through the generous gift of organ and tissue donation. 

The Living Legacy Foundation’s Family Services team serves family members and friends of organ and tissue donors by offering the following assistance to help deal with loss, including, on-going support and counseling, donor family workshops and events celebrating donors’ lives and referrals to local support groups and counselors.
