OHSU Transplant Picnic

Tx Picnic

The annual OHSU Transplant Picnic is a very special event to all of us and we are saddened to have to cancel it again this year due to COVID-19 concerns. Our patients tell us one of their favorite parts of the event is getting to interact with their transplant team as well as other patients. If you would like to send a message to the transplant team or to other recipients, families of deceased donors, or those on the waiting list, please complete and submit this form. We will highlight some of the messages below on this page throughout the summer and will forward any messages to our transplant team. You can also view photos from previous Transplant Picnics or view a video message from the Transplant Team.

"As my husband and I look back on 2020, it's nothing short of a miracle that he received his liver transplant. The miracle was performed by the incredible liver transplant team.  This includes everyone from the office staff, coordinators, doctors and surgeons.  We will always be grateful for the care we received during the height of the pandemic.  Each day this team helped us to stay patient and keep our worst fears at bay. Thank you OHSU for taking such good care of us!" (Patricia T, Family and Support Person)

"Dearest Patients, I miss seeing you all but know that I am thinking of you.  You are the reason that our roles as Transplant Professionals are so fulfilling and you continue to inspire us to put forth our very best in your care. Be Well!" (Joseph Lockridge, MD, Transplant Nephrologist, OHSU Kidney Transplant Program)
