Thanksgiving Celebration

Every year on the Sunday before Thanksgiving, the Lions Organ & Eye Bank, in cooperation with UT Southwestern Medical Center Transplant Services, honors Donor Families in a ceremony at UT Southwestern Medical Center.

The Transplant Services Center provides services to hospitals and physicians throughout Texas, the nation, and on occasion worldwide. It is a clinical and academic service center of UT Southwestern Medical Center which "completes the Circle of Care" from donation to transplantation by providing a full-service tissue bank which procures, processes, stores, and distributes tissue allografts.  

These transplantable tissues include corneas, sclera, skin, musculoskeletal and cardiovascular allografts, which restore function, improve the quality of life, and in some cases even save lives.
