Kaelyn's Place

The Transplant Housing Project was launched after GoodHearts received more than 50 donations made in memory of Kaelyn MacKenzie. She was on the heart transplant list at the University of Alberta Hospital when she passed away on Jan. 25, 2009.

The U of A Hospital has the largest transplant centre in Canada, serving patients from Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, northern British Columbia, and the Arctic territories. In 2009, medical teams performed 251 organ transplants in Edmonton, and provided 1,350 tissue grafts. The number of patients on last year's transplant waiting list was 761, and about 500 of these were non-Edmonton residents.

2nd Chance Trail Ride Suite

The 2nd Chance Trail Ride was founded in 2012 after Morris Irvine received a double lung transplant. He along with his fellow organ recipients wanted to give back, and raise organ donation awareness so others could have a Second Chance.
