The health and happiness of the families of organ donors and their recipients are improved in the great majority of cases when the two sides are allowed to communicate with each other, if both sides have expressed such a desire. Communication may be either by letter or in person, depending on the wishes of the two families. Yet both are made difficult or impossible in most countries because of fears that one side or the other might suffer psychological damage. The evidence presented in this paper shows those fears are usually unfounded. In fact, the health of both sets of families is more likely to be harmed when they are kept apart.
