New England Donor Remembrance Quilt at Lamar Soutter Library honors organ donors

UMass Medical School Communications

November 26, 2019

The New England Donor Remembrance Quilt is on display at the Lamar Soutter Library at UMass Medical School through Tuesday, Dec. 31. Composed of squares of fabric individually designed and created by donor family members and friends, the remembrances quilt is a testament to the generosity of donor families and a tribute to their loved ones, whose life and death the quilt commemorates.

Organ donation is a legacy of life and giving so that others in need may live. New England Donor Services coordinates organ and tissue donation and serves thousands of donor families each year who have generously made the decision to donate, and honors the wishes of those who registered as donors and gave the gift of life.
