Whether you're a transplant recipient or candidate, a living donor, a family member, caregiver, or health care practitioner, stories help us understand our own complex experiences, and the experiences of those around us. Stories of living donation play a crucial role in raising national awareness of the life-changing gift of living donation, the resilience of our transplant patients and caregivers, and the dedication of our healthcare teams.
