Our Organ Donation Story

Amy Muenchow, our Executive Director, was interviewed by Sam Carlson (UW Madison nursing student) about her life-saving kidney transplant story! Check out the interview here to learn more!

Our Story

In Honor & Memory

We are very passionate about organ donation, and we work tirelessly in honor and memory of our Dad. Our father, Steve, was a two-time kidney transplant patient. He was diagnosed with Vasculitis at age 19, and that lead to eventual kidney failure. He was placed on dialysis during both transplant processes.

Gift of Life

Our father had his first kidney transplant in 1991 from a deceased donor, and his second in 2007 from our mother, Amy Muenchow. They were the perfect match! Both transplants took place at UW Madison Transplant Clinic. 

Our Life-Saving Mission

Twice, our Dad was given a second change due to a life-saving donor. His transplants gave him 25 more years of life. Unfortunately we lost our father in 2014 to stage-four lung cancer, due to his suppressed immune system. We have made it our mission to spread the word about organ, eye, and tissue donation in the State of Wisconsin, while keeping our father's legacy alive and honoring his memory.

Organ Donation Information & Facts

How to Register

image24

"Be an Everyday HERO!"


You can register to be an organ, eye, and tissue donor at DonateLifeWisconsin.org or at your local Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). If you register your decision at the DMV, your driver's license will be reflected with an orange donor dot. 


How does donation work?

image25

Organ donation can be procured through living donors and deceased donors. Living donation is determined based on extensive medical matching.  Deceased donation occurs once the donor has passed. The surgical team removes the organs and tissues from the donor's body in an operating room. Organs are recovered, and then additional authorized tissues such as bone, cornea, and skin.
