Living kidney donation

Living kidney donation

Transplant kidneys can come from a living donor or a deceased donor. 

There are many benefits to living donation, including shorter wait times, improved kidney survival and a lowered rejection risk. 

A living donor can be a relative, like a parent, or can  be unrelated, like a family friend or step parent.  

To be a living donor, you must: 

  • Be at least 19 years old 
  • Be willing to undergo an evaluation process
