WHAT WE DO:
Long Island Transplant Recipients International Organization (TRIO) is a non-profit all volunteer organization committed to improving the quality of lives touched by the miracle of transplantation through education, support, advocacy, and organ donation and transplantation awareness.
Each month Long Island TRIO has monthly meetings (virtual due to COVID-19) featuring medical professionals discussing relevant topics to pre or post transplant members.

Transplant Life Foundation honored Joy Oppedisano (LI TRIO President) - nominated by Jennifer Lentini.
Jennifer says, “Joy has been a Member of Long Island TRIO for countless years and I've personally known her since after my transplant for 26 years. She is the President now and makes everyone feel special and important in the organization. Takes time out of her day to be around for any member of the group and even people she may have never met in person yet. Joy has a heart of gold and her compassion is superb. She is not just a hero to me but so many people in each life she touched. Not all heroes wear capes, some genuinely have hearts of gold.”
