Living Organ Donation

Living Organ Donation

“The future depends on what we do in the present.” - Ghandi

Living donation presents an opportunity to help address the critical need for organ transplants. There are over 120,000 people listed for an organ transplant nationwide. Approximately 10,000 of those people live right here in New York. Every 18 hours, a New Yorker will die waiting for a life-saving transplant.

Living donation, through kidney and liver donations, can help change these statistics. Information within this Living Donation section has been provided to help interested parties better understand the impact this beautiful gift of life can have on donors and recipients.
