Transplant Speakers International
(TSI) is a non-profit organization by and for transplant recipients and organ and tissue donor families established in 1998 to provide education on the benefits of organ transplantation. Because organ donation is truly the “gift of life,” TSI has developed a professional speakers’ bureau comprised of donor family members and transplant recipients, available to personalize the “tragedy and triumph” that is organ donation and transplantation.
