The Journey to Find a Donor Has Begun

As someone in need of a living kidney donor due to the genetic condition of Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD), I am so grateful that people are beginning to call to do the 15-minute phone screening. Many people have reached out to me with words of support and encouragement. I also deeply appreciate the people that are spreading the word on social media and in other ways.

Sometimes, the stats in this graphic worry me.   But I have great support from my family and friends, and I have great hope in the capacity of humankind to help others.

Because of these stats, the transplant waiting list is quite long. Living donors save lives. You can help by calling us at 770-310-2426 for info to do a 15-minute phone screening on being a living donor.

A living donor candidate is a person who is healthy, well-informed and makes a voluntary decision to donate one of their kidneys. Living donors must be over 18 and in good general health, have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of less than 30, a non-smoker, with no evidence of significant high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer, kidney disease, heart disease or hepatitis.
