CLEVELAND TRIO AFTER THE HOLIDAYS ANNUAL DINNER!

Happy New Year to all the TRIO Members and Friends!!

I wanted to reach out and invite you all to join us in celebrating a new year of LIFE, especially now that the holidays have passed and we are back to enjoying this beautiful winter in Northeast Ohio. We postponed our annual dinner to February this year in order to devote time to providing a meal to the residents of the transplant house in January.

The date is February 23rd at 12:30pm. We have a NEW LOCATION this year!!

I am excited to announce that we will be at Dino’s Grille Room at the historic Pine Ridge Country Club! 30605 Ridge Road Wickliffe, OH 44092

THE TRIO MISSION

TRIO

is a non-profit organization improving the quality of lives touched by the miracle of transplantation through support, advocacy, education and awareness.


Support

We provide support to transplant candidates, recipients and their families, donors and donor families to help alleviate the stresses and problems associated with the process.

Education

We provide current information (with respect to developments in organ and tissue donation,transplantation,medications, socialissues, and finances) to transplant candidates, recipients and their families, donors and donor families about initiatives and protocols in the field of transplantation


Advocacy

We make the concerns and needs that affect the welfare of transplant candidates, recipients, and donor families known to federal government bodies. We also effectively communicate the views of transplant candidates, recipients and their families,donors and donor families to the general public.

Awareness

We promote organ and tissue donation as an important social responsibility. We develop and support mechanisms to improve the availability of organs and tissues on an equitable basis to meet the need of transplant candidates.
