Welcome to our site!

The Transplant Foundation of New England is a non-profit organization that focuses on supporting the unique needs of transplant patients and their families. Founded by John Morelli, a transplant recipient himself, the foundation is set to aggressively meet a true need in the market. In years past, transplant patients and their families were left to find their way financially and in all other ways through the process. There are support services available but those entities are truly limited in the scope of services that they provide and are not entirely focused on this area of need. This will all change with the addition of the Transplant Foundation to the landscape, as the organization will focus all of their efforts on providing resources and an unprecedented level of support to candidates and their families.
