28. Support TRIO PTC
Transplant Recipients International Organization, Inc. (TRIO) is a 30-year-old non-profit organization, committed to improving the quality of lives touched by the miracle of transplantation through support, advocacy, education, and awareness. You may learn about TRIO by visiting our main web site at www.trioweb.org .
TRIO offers you an opportunity to participate as a sponsor in the Post-Transplant Cancer project. Many studies now confirm that cancer is is a major source of morbidity following solid organ transplant and has become one of the three major causes of death after transplantation.
TRIO has undertaken a multi-phase, multi-year project to educate transplant recipients of their higher post-transplant cancer risk, identifying and encouraging best practices for living longer lives, addressing that risk with early detection and proactive steps preventing and dealing with post-transplant cancer. As such, it will be a valuable resource for use with individuals and with transplant program patient support groups. While the PTC site has a more user friendly interface, here is an overall map of this PTC educational web site organized around the four "L's" of LEARN, LOOK, LIVE and LINKS:
With 20,000-22,000 transplants performed each year, and 122,000 on the waiting list (www.UNOS.org), we anticipate an audience of at least 100,000.

TRIO is already investing heavily in Phase 1 of this project through our own resources: time, talent and funds. What you see here is the final production web site which you are currently viewing at www.triowebptc.org . This web site is still being developed as our main thrust of Phase 1 of the Post-Transplant Cancer project. Phases 2 & 3 will involve development of video based PTC workshops and PTC informational kits similar to what you see here on the web site resource.
