Living donation is a transplant surgery performed between two living adults. Typically, a blood relative, spouse, or close family friend donates to the patient in need.
Living donation is made possible when an individual donates a kidney, or part of his/her liver. Living kidney donors can live a normal, healthy life with only one kidney. The same can be said for living liver donors — the liver of a living liver donor will regenerate and grow to the necessary size to function as needed.
Interested in becoming a living kidney or liver donor, or you want to help?
If you would like to help a family member or friend find a living donor, we periodically conduct Living Donor Champion training.
