You might not know a lot about living donation - I know I didn’t before kidney disease affected my family. Understandably, some people are afraid about the surgery and what living with one kidney will mean for them. Here’s some basic information about kidney donation:

You only need one kidney to live a healthy, long life.

Most donor surgery is done laparoscopically, meaning through tiny incisions.

The recuperation period is usually fairly quick, generally two weeks.

The cost of your evaluation and surgery will be covered by my insurance. The hospital can give you extensive information on this.

You will have a separate team of healthcare professionals to evaluate you as a living donor. Their job is to help you understand the risks and benefits and look out for YOUR best interests.

You can also learn more about living donation on the National Kidney Foundation (NKF) website: www.kidney.org/livingdonation or by contacting the NKF’s free, confidential helpline at 855.NKF.CARES (855.653.2273) or [email protected]. If you want to talk to someone who’s already donated a kidney, NKF can also help.

To know Buck is to love him. He is kind and generous and has always been the kind of person to help anyone that needed it. Now, he is in need. Buck is in stage 5 kidney failure. He is on dialysis 5 days a week and in need of a kidney transplant. The quickest way for him to be able to regain his life and health is through a living donor. He is O+ and once he is approved to be a kidney transplant recipient, we are asking those who are willing, to be tested to see if they are a match.
This journey hasn't been easy for him or Jamie, but they remain optimistic and steadfast in their faith. Buck has always been there for his friends, family, and his community and now it's our turn to give back to him. Please pray with us as his journey continues and that a match will be found quickly 💗 The living donor link is below. Please message us if you have any questions. We are grateful for all of the love and support ❤️
