"Prioritizing ideal DD transplants to children has resulted in decreased rates of living donation."

"One small step might be to promote a living donor as the primary (kidney) choice for a kidney transplant for children or for those in need of a multiple organ transplant."
Unrelated directed kidney donor in 2003, recipient and I both well.
626 time blood and platelet donor since 1976 and still giving!
Elected to the OPTN/UNOS Boards of Directors & Executive, Kidney Transplantation, and Ad Hoc Public Solicitation of Organ Donors Committees, 2005-2011
