Do you know that more than 42,800 transplants were performed in 2022? The transplant journey can present challenging circumstances, and sharing experiences with other transplant recipients can be an effective way to cope with the stress associated with the transplantation process.
TRIO Greater Cleveland is an independent, not-for-profit organization committed to improving the quality of life of transplant candidates, recipients, their families, and the families of organ and tissue donors through education, advocacy, support, and awareness. Our strategic plan through 2023 includes various events, membership growth, provision of education opportunities, and increased collaboration within the transplant community. Here are the opportunities we have planned for this year.
In addition, we value the collaborative relationships within our transplant community and provide reach to healthcare providers, other transplant not-for-profit organizations, and patients and their families. .
Transplant patients and caregivers are invited to participate in our peer-to-peer support group, TRIO Transplant Shares, offered on the Third Wednesday of each month at 6:30 pm. The monthly group is accessible online through a ZOOM link or in person at Transplant House of Cleveland. Moderated by transplant recipients and transplant nurses, these online sessions offer an excellent opportunity to connect, learn, and be encouraged. A TRIO Board Member will facilitate each session.
The transplant journey can present challenging circumstances, such as being a patient on the transplant waiting list and navigating post-transplant medications and follow-up clinic visits. Sharing your experiences with people who have already gone through those experiences can be an effective way to cope with the stress associated with the transplantation process.
