Tell Us Your Story

We’ve put first person storytelling at the heart of our kidney donation media projects.  It’s real, it’s personal and it’s inspiring.  We are continually seeking stories for AbundantDonor Diaries and future CrowdSource for Life shows that tell the stories related to living organ donation.  If you are a living kidney or liver donor, a non-directed organ donor, a kidney patient or a kidney transplant recipient, we want to hear from you.

We are seeking genuine first-person stories related to living organ transplants.
