Answering “If”

From our CEO and Board Chair

At the Heart of Our Mission Lies a Central Challenge: “What If?”

We commit to setting the bar higher. We push to going further. We work toward making “if” a reality.

In 2016, our spirit pushed us further. A few of our proudest moments include:

  • Recording our most impactful year in the past decade, with a resounding 587 lives saved through organ donation.
  • Marking a record-breaking 63% donor designation rate in registries in Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota.
  • Facilitating Mayo Clinic’s first face transplant from donor Calen “Rudy” Ross, giving another young man a second chance at life.

We dedicate every one of our accomplishments to the donors whose selfless gifts provide renewed hope and life. If they had not made the generous decision to help those awaiting transplants, our work would be impossible.

To our generous contributors, we thank you deeply. Every contribution represents a vote of confidence in our mission and our resolve to achieve our goals. Your commitment helped us work with 179 organ donors and their families to save the lives of 587 people through organ donation. It also helped us to facilitate 557 eye and tissue donations which could save and heal over 47,000 lives or more.

As we look toward next year, we’re reminded of the nearly 3,400 people still waiting for a lifesaving transplant in the Upper Midwest. As we continue to increase donor designation, research tomorrow’s technology and support the families of donors, we strive to answer “If” with “Life.”

Susan Gunderson, CEO, and Bruce King, Board Chair, stand together at LifeSource headquarters.

Impact Report

A Year of
Pushing Further

Simply put, 2016 was our most impactful year in the past decade.

We saved more lives through organ, eye and tissue donation. More adults in our region said “yes” to donation. And more patients qualified for donation at the time of tragedy, selflessly giving the gift of life to another.

Up to 75 lives may be healed by one person’s generous gift, and more than 3,400 people in Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Western Wisconsin continue to wait for a lifesaving transplant. Our successes of 2016 push us further on our mission to serve grieving families and to save and heal lives.

2016 Transplant Programs

These partnerships enabled 179 organ donors to save the lives of 587 people through organ donation, and 557 eye and tissue donations to heal over 47,000 lives.

Remarkable Achievements, Ambitious Goals

Calen "Rudy" Ross gave one man his life back through LifeSource's first face transplant.
2016 Achievement

We Facilitated Minnesota’s First Face Transplant

In June, we partnered with Mayo Clinic on a VCA program (Vascularized Composite Allograft) to meet the needs of a patient waiting for a face transplant. With the support of his family and our partners at Sanford USD Medical Center and Mayo Clinic, donor Calen “Rudy” Ross generously gave one man his life back.

2017 Goal

We’ll Expand Donation Services

An ongoing effort, we will expand our organ, eye and tissue donation services. These range from exciting advances in medical technology, like the VCA program and training labs that simulate donation experiences, to providing services and support for grieving families.

2016 Achievement

We Increased Tissue Donation

Tissue donation increased by 21% in 2016, resulting in more than 41,000 lives potentially healed and saved through these precious grafts. We completed nearly half of all tissue recoveries at our River Road Headquarters, increasing efficiency, effectiveness and service to donor families and partners.

2017 Goal

We'll Expand Use of Our Clinical Space

We’re re-envisioning how we use our clinical space, including developing a program for in-house simulation labs. The SIM labs enable clinicians and donor services personnel to experience simulated donation experiences in a highly realistic clinical setting.

2016 Achievement

We Extended Our Gallery of Hope

We added more donor and recipient stories to our Gallery of Hope and built a lobby display at our River Road Headquarters to showcase these inspiring tribute stories shared by donor families, living donors and transplant recipients.

2017 Goal

We’ll Increase Gallery of Hope Participation

We will gather even more inspiring stories from those touched by donation and transplantation. Gallery of Hope stories, contributed by families and friends, help us to further share the message of hope and healing. We’d be honored if you’d make time to share your own story.

2016 Achievement

We Engaged the Native American Community in the Mission of Donation

With the generous support of a grant from the Minnesota Department of Health, we began a project to increase much-needed support for donation in the Native American community in partnership with Hennepin County Medical Center.

2017 Goal

We’ll Grow Multicultural Engagement

To sustain and grow the rate of organ donation, we will further multicultural engagement in communities throughout our region. People of all communities, regardless of background, are increasingly understanding the generosity and selflessness of donation.

2016 Achievement

We Launched e-Learning Capabilities

We launched e-learning capabilities to train driver’s license professionals throughout Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota. In addition, we hosted 21 donation-related events at our headquarters for groups like driver’s license professionals.

2017 Goal

We’ll Expand Donor Registration

We’re working with the DNR so that hunters and fishermen will have the option to register to be a donor when they renew their licenses online. Because these licenses are renewed annually, this opportunity offers more frequent reminders of the importance of saying “yes” to donation.

LifeSource Spark Donate Life Symposium for healthcare and end-of-life professionals
2016 Achievement

We Expanded Donation Services

We expanded donation services to include eye donation in North Dakota, in partnership with Minnesota Lions Eye Bank. The eye bank obtains, medically evaluates and distributes over 1,000 donor eyes annually, ensuring that as many people as possible receive the gift of sight.

2017 Goal

We’ll Strengthen Donation Programs

At our bi-annual Donate Life Symposium, Spark, we will educate and inspire hundreds of healthcare and end-of-life professionals. The symposium, on October 25–26, 2017, is held every other year in the Twin Cities. It includes an open house at our headquarters, a Donate Life Flag Raising at the conference, and a full day of educational events designed to strengthen organ, eye and tissue donation programs.

Making an Impact

In Native American culture, where organ and tissue donation isn‘t traditionally accepted, Trinidad Flores was a leader.

Native American Outreach

We began implementing a grant from the Minnesota Department of Health to increase support for donation in the Native American community in the state. This grant is in partnership with Hennepin County Medical Center, and all of the transplant centers in Minnesota are participating as part of a Transplant Center Advisory Council. Our activities have laid the groundwork for implementing a sustainable campaign with this important community in 2017.

Community Event

Donor Family Workshops

Donor Family Workshops expanded our support services for the families we serve. New in 2016, we held two workshops at our River Road Headquarters to help families who were interested in completing legacy opportunities in honor of their loved ones. One workshop, pictured here, was focused on creating a quilt square for our Donor Family Quilt. The other workshop focused on helping interested families create a Gallery of Hope tribute for their loved one.

That's 63% of adults in our region who have said "yes" to donation.
