Help Now

donate-life“After donating a kidney, the donor’s remaining healthy kidney will grow until it is able to do the work of 2 kidneys. Living kidney donors have a normal expected life span and do not have a greater risk for kidney disease. Their lifestyle and activities are not restricted in any way. Women who have donated a kidney do not have any added risk in pregnancy or childbirth.” – Northwestern Memorial Hospital

Want to see if you can be the donor Gary needs?

1)  Visit Northwestern Memorial Hospital to read about the process.  Their Donor Information Packet is jammed full of information on becoming a match, what the surgery and recovery are like, and frequently asked questions.

2)  Call the transplant team at 312-695-0828 with any questions, then ask them to make a donor appointment for you.

3)  Complete This Potential Living Donor Questionnaire and fax back to the hospital at 312-695-0036 before you attend your appointment.  It can take as long as 2-3 weeks before you will hear if you have been approved to move to the next level of screening.

    How does one become a part of this campaign. I am also in need of a kidney and listed at Nortwestern Hospital. I chose Northwest because they performed my heart transplant in 2008. I would appreciate being a part of this excellent campaign. Thanks for the consideration.
