Dear Mr and Mrs Washburn:
LifeGift Organ Donation Center and I would like to again express our sympathy at the loss of your son, Thomas. We sincerely thank you for considering the needs of others in your time of great personal loss. It must be very difficult to lose someone so suddenly and without warning. The following is a little information on the recipients of the organs.
Medicare and the transplant centers involved assume the hospital and physician charges associated with obtaining the organs and tissues. This means that any hospital and physician bills you may receive will be only for attempts to save your son's life. If you find any discrepancy in the hospital bill, or any questions, please do hot hesitate to call me at (713) 523-4438.
The gift of life is the most precious gift of all. I am sure the recipients and their families would want me to express their profound gratitude to you for turning your tragedy into a new beginning for them. I hope in the weeks and months to come the kindness you have shown will come back to you in the love and support of your family and friends. I have enclosed a booklet that I hope will be of some comfort to you.
