Funds raised benefit two important programs. The first fund, the Mike Armbrust Fund for Transplant Patients and Families, supports patients. Mike was John’s transplant coordinator, and a person whose commitment to compassionate care greatly assisted John. Because transplant patients and their families often travel long distances for their care, this fund helps defray the cost of accommodations, travel and other unexpected but related expenses. The second fund is the UW Organ and Tissue Donor Education Fund, which provides educational resources to increase awareness of organ and tissue donation. With more than 123,000 people in the U.S. awaiting organ transplant, the need is great. John’s work to help more people understand the important of organ donation aided many other people from the Rockford area. Please join us as we continue John’s legacy.
