  1. 1. DAWN JOHNSON ON THE NATIONAL FOUNDATION FOR TRANSPLANTS By Dawn Johnson
  2. 2. Introduction  The National Foundation for Transplants (NFT) is a nonprofit organization advocating for medical patients in need of organ transplantation. Founded in 1983, the foundation touches the lives of more than 2,500 patients on an annual basis and has raised over $60 million in aid.
  3. 3. About National Foundation for Transplants  Originally named the Liver Organ Transplant Fund, the NFT started when Mary Clouse, Liz Hull, and Elise Waldheim, three Memphis women, read a newspaper article about a young girl who could not afford a critical liver transplant. The continual focused efforts of the three women led to their raising sufficient money to help the girl afford the transplant. When their story was publicized, transplant candidates from around the nation began sending in requests for help. The organization soon changed its name to Organ Transplant Fund and then to National Foundation for Transplants, to reflect its expanded purpose of serving patients in need of all types of organ transplants, including bone marrow, tissue, and other types.
  4. 4. Conclusion  Dawn Johnson launched DMJ Consulting after working for 20+ years for USAA, an insurance and financial services company headquartered in San Antonio, Texas. The National Foundation for Transplants is among her supported charities.
