Patient waiting for a heart transplant.

MTS Family House resident Ryan Gammon is on the waiting list for a heart transplant.

  • Waiting for an organ donation can be an extremely stressful time in a patient’s life. That’s why MTS continues to find ways to make life on the waiting list easier – from helping patients with medical and utility bills through our recipient fund program, to providing a home away from home at the MTS Family House.
