Altruistic/Non-Directed Donors
« on: March 17, 2019, 04:34:47 PM »
Hi Everyone,

I love this site and being apart of it, it is so great connecting with other donors and hearing their stories along with any problems any of us have encountered.

I donated in 2014, non-directed in Ohio. I am curious if anyone else on Living Donors is a non-directed donor? I am trying to connect with other non-directed donors but I am having a trouble finding many.
Would love to hear from some :)

I donated a kidney non-directed back in 2002. My story is in the "experiences" section of this site. There are other non-directed donors here, and many more who only check in at the FaceBook page of "Living Donors on Line" or the page of "Living Kidney Donor Support Group."

Hello Ashley,

I donated a kidney non-direct in October 2015. I was part of a paired exchange and our chain of donors and recipients was 10 people (5 donors/ 5 recipients).

I am blessed to say that both my non-direct recipient and I are doing very well.
