NEDS Donor Family Facebook Group

The NEDS Donor Family Facebook Group provides a place for donor family members to connect with other individuals who have experienced a loss, share their loved one’s story and post photographs. This is a “secret” group as defined by Facebook, meaning that only Donor Family Members approved for membership can see content. In order to join the group, you must have a Facebook account.

If you are interested in joining, please email ac@neds.org.
