If You Have an Incompatible Donor You Need to Know About: The Paired Exchange Conundrum

30% of potential living kidney donors are not compatible with their intended recipient. Incompatible donors/recipients need to be listed in multiple donor pools to maximize their chances of being matched with another incompatible pair. The Conundrum is that transplant centers don’t tell incompatible pairs about the benefit of listing with multiple paired exchange programs.

LKDN develops the first national campaign to educate the public about the need for Living Kidney Donors

Unlike the successful governmental programs that have educated the public about the need to register to be an organ and tissue donor, the public is unaware of the need for living kidney donors.

The Living Kidney Donors Network is a not-for-profit organization whose primary Mission is to educate people who need a kidney transplant about the living donation process and to prepare them to effectively communicate their need to family members and friends.

In the past 10 years the kidney transplant waiting list has doubled to over 90,000 people and many wait more than 5 years for a kidney transplant. There have been fewer deceased donations in 3 of last 4 years…and number of living donors was lower in 5 of last 6 years, both are troubling statistics. 

The LKDN also trains dialysis and transplant social workers on how they can help their patients pursue living donation. 

The LKDN Community Outreach Initiative educates the public about the overwhelming need for kidney transplants and the positive impact that living kidney donation is having. This program is facilitated by volunteers, recipients and donors who want to help the LKDN achieve their goals.

Harvey established the LKDN after recognizing the need for better resources while pursuing a successful living kidney transplant in 2006. Our purpose is to share knowledge and build the confidence to enable the life changing benefits of living donation. Click here to learn more about Harvey.
