Support Group Meeting!
Living Donors, Transplant Recipients, and those waiting along with family and friends. Come share your story, give encouragement, support, and hope!
Kidney transplantation is an excellent option for patients with kidney disease who want to live a life free of dialysis. Kidney Solutions is facilitated by transplant professionals, recipients and living donors who want to assist patients in finding a living kidney donor and help them and their families through the pre- and post transplant process.
There are many benefits to receiving a kidney from a living donor versus one from a deceased donor. The most obvious is that a kidney from a living donor lasts on average twice as long as one from a deceased donor. Medical advances and drugs have made it much easier for someone to be a compatible donor. In the past, living donors needed to be a close relative. Now, it’s more common that a living donor is not related to their recipient.
