Living Organ Donation

Relatives, loved ones, friends and even individuals who wish to remain anonymous often serve as living donors to spare a patient a long and uncertain wait. These recipients are friends, family, and sometimes even strangers. In 2021, more than 6,500 transplants were made possible by generous living donors.

See this guide from the United Network of Organ Sharing (UNOS) for the low-down on all things living transplantation:
