For the past month we have been following Dave on his journey towards becoming a living kidney donor. In this latest update, episode #4 Dave talks about hearing from his co-coordinator.
There are over 200,000 people waiting for a kidney.
At DonorPlus we are all about supporting living kidney donors. We believe that helping living organ donors will make more donations possible, but our goal and focus will always be to support and empower donors. If supporting donors means more donations, fantastic but that is not our priority - DonorPlus is built by donors for donors.
Note: Living kidney donation is major surgery and is not without risk to the donor. Prospective donors are required to undergo extensive testing to ensure they are physically and mentally able to donate.
