Donate Life California solicits living kidney donors

Donate Life California Launches Living Donation California


"SACRAMENTO, Calif., May 14, 2013 – Living Donation California launched today as a first-of-its-kind, state-authorized information and referral service to inspire and inform people to be altruistic living kidney donors. Through its website, www.LivingDonationCalifornia.org, cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 free service provides information about living kidney donation and refers potentially eligible individuals for evaluation at a transplant center.

“There is a national shortage of kidneys available for transplant, and cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 need is especially acute in cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 State of California. By encouraging people to be altruistic kidney donors, Living Donation California gives hope to cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 thousands of transplant-eligible Californians who spend years on dialysis – years cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365y could be spending more time with family, working and living healthy, active lives,” said Lisa Stocks, Board President of Donate Life California, administrators of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 state’s organ and tissue donor registry who togecá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r with fifteen kidney transplant programs developed cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 Living Donation California initiative.

In California, kidney transplant candidates wait up to ten years, and for many patients twice as long as cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 national average, for a kidney transplant from a deceased donor. Circumstances allowing for organ recovery at cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 time of death are a rare (less than one percent) occurrence, so cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 state’s transplant community is focused on increasing living donation to help cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 large and growing number of Californians in need of kidney transplants.

The vast majority of living kidney donors are family or close friends of cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir recipients. A small but growing percentage are altruistic donors who offer cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 gift of a kidney without expectation of receiving anything in return. Federal law prohibits buying and selling organs for transplant, although in some cases living organ donors may be reimbursed for travel and ocá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365r expenses incurred during cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365 donation process. However, altruistic donors commonly feel greatly empowered by cá cược thể thao bet365_cách nạp tiền vào bet365_ đăng ký bet365ir choice to donate a kidney."
