Organ Transplant Support, Inc. (OTS) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that provides support, counseling, education, and informational programs and materials on transplantation for transplant recipients, candidates, their families, health care professionals, and transplant centers.
Together, we support and comfort recipients and their families as they experience the trials of an organ or tissue transplant. We give hope, support, and education to future transplant recipients on a waiting list. We also promote organ and tissue donor awareness in our community.
OTS produces and distributes a monthly newsletter, The Miracle Messenger, to over 1200 members locally and around the globe. Members include recipients, transplant candidates, their families, donors, and donor families as well as health care professionals.
