At Midwest Transplant Network, we proudly work with donor families to create quilts in honor of loved ones who have given the gift of life through organ donation. These beautiful tributes to lifesaving donors travel with us to events throughout Kansas and western Missouri. They are a powerful symbol that helps raise awareness about organ, eye and tissue donation while honoring those individuals who have given gifts of life. View our donor memorial quilts below.

In order to be included in our Donor Memorial Quilts, quilt squares must meet specified guidelines. For more information, please contact us  or view our FAQs.

Quilt 12: Austin Harper

Austin was in a motor vehicle wreck while on a parts run for his work. What would have been a difficult decision was made easier by Austin, himself.  A few weeks prior to his wreck, he had lost his license and went to get a new one.  When he was asked if he wanted to be a donor, he said “yes”.

Full of life, frequently helping others and always looking for a way to make others laugh. He was quite the adventure seeker. He loved to climb, ride 4-wheelers, listen to music, and play video games.
