Kidney Transplant

Donor and Recipient Video Stories

Waiting for an available kidney can often take many years for people with end stage renal disease. Living kidney donation provides one option to many who are eligible for a kidney transplant. One of the most important benefits of having a kidney from a living donor is that the living donation can often happen much sooner than a transplant from a deceased donor. The following stories provide a look inside the lives of a few living donors and kidney transplant recipients and how family and friends have come together to help one another.
