Transplant Team of Connecticut (now Team Liberty) has been very busy with various fundraisers and bringing awareness to the public of the importance of organ and tissue donation. We are looking forward to going to the next Donate Life Transplant Games of America. Any recipients, donor families, living donors, supporters, or professionals are welcome to attend our meetings to learn more about our team.
