Heart Exchange celebrates 30 Years!


The primary purpose of the Heart Exchange is to provide emotional support for transplant patients during the difficult wait for a donor organ and to support those who have received transplants at CHI St Luke's Health Baylor St. Luke's Medical Center in Houston, Texas.




Every year thousands of people receive the gift of life when they get a life-saving transplant such as a kidney, a liver, or intestines. Most organs for transplants come from deceased donors.

What if you could save the lives of up to 8 people?

1 organ donor can save up to 8 lives. Check out this video.

You can also find more information on www.organdonor.gov

Did you know that...
123,318 people are waiting for an organ
