Finding Help for Kidney Disease

The mission of the National Kidney Registry is to facilitate living-donor kidney transplants, including matching compatible donors and recipients who do not know one another. The ultimate goal of the organization is to establish a common, worldwide registry through which all kidney donations pass; this could both significantly reduce the waiting period before, and improve the compatibility of, each transplant. The Web site has information on how the registry works, as well as information on becoming a donor after one’s death. Both those in need of a kidney and those considering making a kidney donation can join the registry.
