Living Organ Donation

Who Can Donate

Most living donors are over the age of 18 and are compatible with the intended transplant candidate. Since some donor health conditions can prevent the donation and transplant from being successful, it is important for candidates to share all information about their physical and mental health with doctors and medical staff during the evaluation process.

Living donors should be in good overall physical and mental health and free from uncontrolled high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer, HIV/AIDS, hepatitis, and active substance abuse.
