Heart-to-Heart Foundation’s mission is to better educate and inform potential organ and tissue donors about the extraordinary need for organ donation, and how they can give “The Gift of Life.” To provide guidance and support for those who are grieving a loved one.
Heart-to-Heart is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization which was founded by Jayne Stanyon to benefit organ and tissue donation. The Stanyon’s lost their two daughters in two separate car accidents; a tragedy that has changed their lives forever. The first accident took their daughter Kirsty in 2003. This was incredibly hard for them, but they survived it nonetheless and found a way to push through. It was during this time that their daughter Hollie shared her wishes with her family to become an organ donor should she ever be faced with that. The untimely phone call that followed, which shared the news of Hollie’s accident, was earth shattering to say the least. It was at this time that Jayne and Peter were able to donate Hollie’s organs; saving 6 people’s lives and enhancing the lives of many more through tissue donation.
Heart-to-Heart Foundation reaches out and educates people on a large scale. Heart-to-Heart creates miracles by increasing the number of organ
donors and teaching people how to be pro-active in taking care of their organs now so they will not need a transplant in the future. In addition, Heart-to-Heart helps support those who have lost a loved one by providing guidance on the steps to recreating joy, acceptance and peace in their lives.
Heart-to-Heart Foundation will educate the public on the importance of organ donation and how one can register to be a donor. Learning more about organ and tissue donation will help every American to make an informed decision about this important issue.
