Of the approximate 10,000 Texans awaiting a lifesaving transplant, more than 8,500 (85%) of them could be saved through living donation
A living donor is an option for patients who otherwise may face a lengthy wait for an organ from a deceased donor. Kidney and liver transplant candidates who are able to receive a living donor transplant can receive an organ much sooner, often in less than a year.
To spare an individual a long and uncertain wait, relatives, loved ones, friends, and even individuals who wish to remain anonymous may serve as living donors.
