DETROIT MOTTEP FOUNDATION
Dear Detroit MOTTEP Foundation Family and Supporters,
We are sending thoughts of health and safety to you, your family and friends during this time that is impacting all of us.
The Detroit MOTTEP Foundation wants you to know the health and safety or our volunteers, participants, supporters, and staff are our top priority and very important to us. We are a family that is knit together by our shared commitment to promote wellness and education around organ and tissue donation in our community. We are a community of caring and sharing for one another.
Due to the impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we have made the preemptive decision to postpone our Kountz/Callender/Drew Transplant Symposium (March 27) and our Lifesavers Leadership Breakfast (April 23). We are actively working and engaging remotely – being mindful of all of the public safety guidelines of social distancing and personal-protection.
The need for critical organ and tissue donation has not ended because of COVID-19. In fact, information and education are even more important during this time. We have friends and loved ones who still need information for those who are awaiting a transplant. There are also families making difficult decisions about organ and tissue donation.
There are still those depending on dialysis to sustain their life. As we all work to grapple with the reality of what is going on, we continue to encourage and reach out to those needing assistance and assurance. Remember, we are all in this together.
Let’s continue to care for those who need us most by calling them, making grocery store runs, and through virtual hugs and check-ins. We are a family and we will get through this together. We will continue to monitor the news and will keep you updated on LIFE Walk/Run 2020 and other summer events. We will also share updates as they are available through e-mail, our website, and through our social media platforms.
Thank you all for your continued support. Please be safe.
The Detroit MOTTEP Foundation Family
