Howard Nathan’s organization is called Gift of Life and, throughout his career, that is what the Jewish Devon resident has tried to provide.
He has largely succeeded, according to colleagues and beneficiaries.
Nathan, 68, spent his career organizing organ transplants for people who needed them. He would have to convince the family of one patient on his deathbed to allow his organs to be donated. Then, Nathan and his Gift of Life Donor Program team would coordinate the process of getting the part from one body to another.
