The Living Donor Forum is for use by Living Organ Donors only.
Welcome to The Living Bank’s secure moderated online living donor forum. It is designed for you. You gave the gift of an organ to save the life of a transplant candidate. You are a member of a unique community. The forum is a vehicle in which you can comment and share both positive and negative aspects related to your donation.
The Living Bank was established in 1968 by five Houston women as the nation’s first organ donor registry. Today, the program focus is living donation due to the prevalence of kidney disease that has caused demand for kidney donors to exceed the supply of deceased donors. Liver disease is increasing at a dramatic rate, living liver transplant enables eligible patients to receive a liver donation from a family member or close friend.
