In order to be listed on the transplant waiting list a recipient must live within a certain proximity to a transplant hospital. The David Nicklas Organ Donation Awareness Foundation provides free fully-furnished housings for people waiting a life-saving organ transplant who are too far from a hospital. Housing is provided in a Foundation-owned apartment complex in the heart of DFW. This site launched this week.
The organization also raises awareness of the need for organ donors, has sponsored many events including golf tournaments, car shows, organ donor awareness day with the Texas Rangers, and more.
