The Arkansas Donor Family Council (ArkDFC) is comprised of a group of Arkansas donor families that works to provide support for other donor families and works to promote organ and tissue donation awareness.
The ArkDFC members represent the wide range of Arkansas families that have made the choice to give the "gift of life" through organ and tissue donation - coming from different areas of the state, having different
economic and social statuses, having different life experiences, and at different points of their lives. Some of the members are donor mothers or fathers; others are donor husbands or wives.
Regardless of these differences, their lives have been brought together through donation and their desire to help others.
