In-Person Support Groups

Visit Transplant Living/UNOS to find a support group in your area. This site has a list of support groups by state.

You or your loved one’s transplant center may offer general transplant support groups or even groups dedicated to a specific organ. A local hospital, which may be closer than the transplant center, may also offer a support group in your area. Ask your transplant social worker to see if a group is offered at your transplant center.
