Hi I am new here and just began the process of becoming a potential living Kidney donor through the National Kidney Registry. I already selected a transplant center and am waiting for them to contact me.

Looking forward to learning lots from everyone here.

Welcome! Be sure to read through the educational material (https://livingdonorsonline.org/kidney/) and ask any questions you may have. We also have stories ("Experiences") of people who have already donated, and we have Living Donor Buddies, in case you'd like to talk with someone who has already gone through the process.

If you are on Facebook, we also have a group there: https://www.facebook.com/groups/livingorgandonors/

Best of luck!

Welcome! I donated non-directed 19 years ago and am doing fine. As Michael has already helpfully noted, there is a lot more activity these days on the FaceBook pages of "Living Donors on Line", and "Living Kidney Donors Support Group", etc. Fewer donors check in here now.
