Become a Living Donor!

Do you know there are more than 400 people on the Buffalo waiting list in need of a kidney?

 

Visit the web site – www.wnykidneyconnection.org– and you will see pictures of your friends and neighbors who are in need of a kidney transplant and read a little bit about them and their needs.

 

In September 2006 these four dedicated women launched this website to raise the awareness of "living donations" for those in need of a kidney transplant in Western New York. Since that time 43 people on our website have now received the "Gift of Life". Thank you to all the altruistic living donors and to those that gave the ultimate gift upon their death - our hearts go out to the families.


Won't you please consider becoming a living kidney donor? After all, you only need one. If you're thinking of being a living donor, it doesn't cost anything to look and just maybe your heartstrings will feel a bit of a tug. With today's technology, thousands of people are giving this ultimate gift of life. To the world you may be just one person, but to one person you just may be the world.


If you are in need of a kidney, we would love to add your name to our list. You just never know where your hero will come from. .... Jeanette Ostrom, Jamestown
