Do donor families and recipients ever meet?

Donor and recipient identity and other detailed personal information are classified unless both parties agree to waive confidentiality. In general, only basic information such as the age, gender and occupation of the recipient or donor as well as the general geographic area may be shared. The recipient may also be told the circumstances of donor's death, while the donor's family may receive feedback on how a recipient's transplant is progressing.
