Article: ‘Gift Certificate’ Concept Enables Kidney Donation, Transplant When Needed

This innovative program by UCLA is a step in the right direction for organs that can be donated through a living donor.

I think this could potentially  shorten wait times for some if they can be matched with someone they know or a family member.

It certainly won’t take care of everyone, but anyone it will take care of will be a start. I think it’s a great program to pilot.

I’m glad it’s also taking hold across the country. The article above I found in CKD News, but for more specific information on the UCLA program, click here.
