Help us support our mission during this time of need.
Every day, our committed volunteers work to raise money to fund programs to reduce the financial barriers to getting a transplant in Michigan and help support transplant recipients live a long and healthy life. Second Chance at Life receives no grants, only through fundraisers are we able to assist patients and transplant centers. Now, we need your help more than ever. Due to social distancing we have had to cancel our in person fundraisers and struggle to find ways to raise money to assist patients. Our organization is committed to ensuring that pre -transplant patients have no financial barriers to getting on the transplant list and those who have received a life saving transplant, maintain stability. With your support we can continue our programs during and after the coronavirus crisis.
Our Motto is to stay Patient-Centered and to be Patient-Driven
Second Chance at Life provides financial support to transplant patients in Michigan who cannot otherwise afford prescriptions, medical bills, and other necessities during and/or after a transplant. Second Chance at Life also works to increase awareness of the need for individuals to register as organ donors and supports research to improve treatment and care for transplant patients. Second Chance at Life was founded in 2008 by Shelly Morell, and her mother, lung recipient Carol Mancini.
Second Chance at Life is a 501(c)(3) organization funded by corporations and individuals. All funds go to support Michigan residents who are transplant candidates, recipients, or living donors.
We kindly ask that you join us by supporting Second Chance at Life. Your gift will help provide financial support needed to continue our mission of helping transplant patients in Michigan. Please consider donating now.
