Living Donation

Living donation is donating some organs and tissues while you are alive. It offers an alternative for individuals awaiting transplantation from a deceased donor and increases the existing organ supply. According to HRSA, about four out of every 10 donations are from a living donor. The first living transplant was a kidney transplant between twin brothers in 1954. Living donors can give one kidney, one liver lobe, a lung or part of a lung, part of the pancreas, or part of the intestines. To learn more, click one of the following links:
