Complicated Grief

This type of grief differs from normal grief or other bereavement reactions.  These painful emotions are so long lasting and severe that you have trouble accepting the death and resuming your own life.

Lifebanc Counseling Support Schedule

Throughout the year, Lifebanc holds support groups in several locations with different topics.  Registration is required for these sessions.

Gift of Life Memorial Program

This program was created to honor the organ, eye and tissue donors and their families.

Donor Family Facebook Page

This program was created to give you the opportunity to share about your loved one, discuss what you’re experiencing, ask for support and advice from other donor families, and offer support and advice to other donor families.

Partner in Grief Program 

The Partner in Grief  will pair donor family members with a volunteer who is farther out from their loss. This person will provide emotional support and encouragement on the grief journey. They truly understand because they walked the path themselves.
