Joe Stivers

Hello my name is Joe Stivers.  I’m 54 years old and have lived here in the Reno area since 1975.  My wife Sue and I have been married for 35 years and have a wonderful son James (28 yrs) and two beautiful granddaughters: Kristen (11 yrs) and Jamie (10 yrs).  Our home is located in Spanish Springs.  I had my Heart Transplant on January 22, 1998 at the University of California San Francisco Medical Center.  My new Heart was donated by a very thoughtful and giving 25 year old man named Daniel who carried an organ donor card.  I recently had the privilege of meeting and thanking in person Daniel’s family.  Thanks to these wonderful people I am once again able to have a very active and happy life playing golf, fishing, boating and spending time with my family.

Transplantation is an amazing achievement….It’s not an easy thing to go through but it definitely is worth it.  If I can be of help to you or someone you know with questions regarding my transplant experience feel free to contact me at :
