To spare an individual patient a long and uncertain wait, relatives, loved ones, friends and even individuals who wish to remain anonymous may serve as living donors. In fact, nearly 7,000 transplants were made possible in 2018 by living donors.
If you are considering living donation, it is critical to gather as much information as you can from various sources.
