The Story behind Transplant Alliance Foundation

Transplant Alliance Foundation is a nonprofit organization that was founded in 2007 by Mary Jo Lovely while she was anxiously waiting for a much needed lung transplant. Transplant Alliance, along with Mary is managed by a special group of concerned and dedicated volunteers with a strong passion about the love and understanding behind organ donation.


Donor Family Butterflies

“The butterfly, a symbol of change, new life and hope, is often associated with donation. In 1992, donor family volunteers chose the butterfly logo to represent the National Donor Family Council because of its simple elegance and symbolism.”

Mary Lovely

Mary Jo Lovely

Mary's transplant story begins in 1997 when she was forced to make the decision after her husband passed. In 2002 she was diagnosed with severe COPD. She received her first lung transplant (single left) July 1, 2007. In 2015 she had her second lung transplant (single right).

Throughout all of the surgeries and the anxiety of being on the list twice, she remained an advocate for organ donation and the need to be listed as a donor.
