I have never seen a company that works as hard as each person here. From the moment you enter the building, you can literally feel the love. This company takes pride in what they do. Its not just a 9-5 for them. Every one is compassionate and doesnt stop until the job is done. Every where you turn, there is always a smiling face. I am beyond honored and delighted to work here.

When I found out my husband needed a transplant I did not know where to turn. My initial research scared me. It showed finding a donor and the amount of money it would cost was over whelming. Someone told me about Jay Feinberg. From that initial phone call I knew we were in good hands. Jay and the gift of life just took over. Thank you to The Gift of Life for getting us thru a very difficult time in our life

Having volunteered with Gift of Life for 7 years, I feel it has truly inspired me to strive to help others. Something so simple as swabbing a cheek can give hope to those who so desperately need it is vital.

There are no changes that I think should be made. What Gift of Life does helps so many in need who are suffering from cancer and other life threatening diseases. I would only want the opportunity to encourage others to join the registry and spread the word!
