You have the opportunity to save a life
Based on information from the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network every 22 seconds in the United States someone dies waiting for a transplant and there are over 750 individuals in Kentucky waiting for a life saving kidney transplant.
Unlike most organs, kidneys can be donated by a living donor. Most people have two kidneys and can live a normal life with only one. That means most of us have a spare we can share!
Here's how you can learn more and help us spread the word about living kidney donation:
- Learn the facts about living kidney donation
- Host an awareness event or town hall discussion with KHAKY representatives on the need for kidney donors and to answer questions
- Invite a KHAKY ambassador to address your church or civic organization
