Over 100,000 people in our country critically need a kidney transplant. The wait time for a deceased donor kidney is typically several years.

There is a solution to this issue: living kidney donation. We each have a vital role to play by raising awareness and educating people about the process of living kidney donation, so that more potential donors might step forward. We want all these people, family, friends, and neighbors, to have the opportunity to live full, healthy lives.

Alan’s Story

One of our very own members, Alan Oak, needs a kidney.

Alan was born with two undersized kidneys, is now in stage 5 (end stage) kidney failure, and needs a kidney transplant. Every qualifying member of his family has already been tested. Heartbreakingly, none of them are able to become donors.

Would you help us in our efforts to raise awareness and help find Alan a donor?
