Lifebanc Board of Directors

The need for registered organ, eye and tissue donors in Ohio and across the United States is critical. Lifebanc cannot diligently pursue our mission, vision and values without the help of community partners.

Paul’s new-found energy and continued love of life would not have been possible without donors and their families “who must love and care in order to give a gift of love and life. There is no way that I can ever repay these families. My prayers include the unknown persons who donated the heart valves that extended my life. I will be forever grateful for these gifts.”"
