Live Kidney Donation

What is Live Kidney Donation?

Live kidney donation is a gift of a normal functioning kidney from one living human being to another. Live kidney donation is usually charged with lots of emotion. Giving an organ to enhance another person’s life is a momentous event!

It is entirely normal to feel apprehensive at the thought of donating a kidney. The decision to proceed with live kidney donation is a very personal one and should not be influenced by anyone – not the potential recipient, nor their family, nor any member of the transplant team. It is your decision alone.
