Approximately 17 people die each day in the U.S. waiting for a kidney transplant. The waitlist is growing faster than our ability to transplant, and people are losing their lives as a result. There will never be enough kidneys available for transplant under the current system. We must do better.
One promising way to ensure more kidneys are available for transplantation is to increase living donor transplants. Our country, however, has no national program to address this issue.
The Kidney Transplant Collaborative is encouraging Members of Congress to sponsor important legislation, the Living Organ Volunteer Engagement (LOVE) Act, to help increase living donor kidney transplants and save lives.
Please click the link below to send an email to your elected officials in D.C. (your Senators and Representative) asking them to sign on as an early supporter of the Living Organ Volunteer Engagement (LOVE) Act to help save more lives.
Thank you for your support!
