A Shawl of Hope Foundation Supports Transplant Care

Shawl

Our thanks to A Shawl of Hope Organ Transplant Support Foundation, Inc. for its generous gift to the RWJ University Hospital Foundation to aid our transplant patients and their families. Storm Shawl, president of A Shawl of Hope, and his family and friends established the nonprofit organization to honor Storm’s late father, William “Bill” Shawl. Bill Shawl was diagnosed with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis in 2003 and received a lung transplant. Several years later in 2011, he passed away from cancer. In his memory, his family and friends committed themselves to helping other ‚Ä™transplant patients and their families. This was the first gift that RWJ received from the Shawl Foundation, and we look forward to many more collaborations in the future.
