Our Stories

Lifebanc works to save and heal lives in our community.  Nothing demonstrates the mission of Lifebanc better than the poignant stories of those waiting, transplant recipients and donor families.

 

Those Waiting

Lifebanc works diligently to pursue a future when everyone waiting receives a transplant.  It is said that waiting is the hardest part, but for these individuals it is sometimes a matter of life and death.

Donors

Lifebanc honors the generosity of donors and their families whose gifts of donated organs, tissues and corneas help people in need live longer and fuller lives. Join us in remembering donors who have inspired our community.

Recipients

Lifebanc celebrates transplant recipients who in their gratitude for renewed life have chosen to inspire people through their stories of courage in the face of adversity.

OUR HERO

On December 2, 2008, at only six years old, Zoe received her new heart. Today, Zoe is a happy and healthy eleven-year-old who dances, plays basketball and runs youth charity races. “We are so thankful for her donor and his family, who made the ultimate sacrifice so that my daughter could live,” Chrissy Snider. “He’s our hero.”"
