90+% of Living Kidney Donors Knew Their Recipient Before the Transplant
Living Kidney Donors Network
If you are in need of a kidney transplant there's nothing more important than spreading the word about your situation. When friends and family members help spread the word, their contacts may know you too, but may not have known about your need. REACHING PEOPLE YOU KNOW, OR THAT KNOW YOU IS THE KEY TO A SUCCESSFUL LIVING KIDNEY TRANSPLANT EXPERIENCE.
Would You Like to See Your Transplant Center Host a LKDN Workshop?
Many transplant centers are now hosting LKDN workshops and their alumni, recipients and donors are leading these programs. Other organizations, i.e. dialysis clinics, nephrology practice, ESRD Networks and other groups have invited me to lead the LKDN workshop for their patients.
