Individuals can donate a kidney, a piece of their liver or a lobe of their lung.
The program provides potential living organ donors with information, then supports them through the donation process. This includes:
- assessment and testing to see if a person is able to donate
- education about the process of donation
- preparing patient for donation surgery
- following patients post donation
Living donors can be someone related or non-related to the recipient. Anonymous donation may also be an option for liver and kidney donation.
Kidney donors who come forward for a specific recipient and are not a match, may still be able to help that recipient via the Kidney Paired Donation Program.
