Have questions about whether you can be a living donor? This resource can help!
More and more people today need organ transplants, but there are not enough suitable deceased donor organs available. An organ that comes from a person who recently died is called a deceased donor organ. Organs are only removed from people after death if they had volunteered at some point before their death. Unfortunately, not enough people step forward to be donors after death. That is why it is often necessary to consider a living organ donor. A healthy person can donate one kidney or a part of his or her liver, lung, pancreas, or intestine.
