GoSeeDoKc Logo 2017

Go…on one tour.
See…something unique in Kansas City.
Do…it to support organ, eye and tissue donation.

Gift of Life annually educates 30,000 high students and their family members about organ, eye and tissue donation. The organization also inspires transplant candidates and their families by giving them hope and encouragement with a trained mentor. And Gift of Life encourages individuals to share their decision about donation with a loved one.

It isn’t a coincidence that Kansas City has one of the highest donor rates in the nation. It is a cause!

GOSEEDOKC2017 net proceeds $153,710.

Pre + Post Transplant Conversions

Pre+Post is intended to offer a place for transplant candidates, new recipients and caregivers to gather and meet previous recipients who want to encourage and offer encouragement. As a first step, we always encourage patients to check with their transplant coordinator or medical team when you have a question. We also learned that meeting someone else who has had a successful transplant is important and gives you an opportunity to ask general questions along your transplant journey. Call 913-851-1947 or email

The calendar is underwritten by Gift of Life Community Partners: Nate & Kim Harbur, Olathe Medical Center, The University of Kansas Health System and Viracor Eurofins.
