This website is written by a living donor and sponsored by her recipient. The purpose of this website is to provide practical information in a logical manner to people who are considering living donation. It may especially be helpful to potential donors who are not related to their recipient. In this case the donor and recipient are friends but have different racial origins, different genders and live in different countries. This is not a medical site and does not offer medical advice. It does have links to medical sites for further research on kidney donation.
