If you are a Western New Yorker looking for a living kidney donor and want to share it publicly, the Kidney Foundation of WNY can help! We can work with you on crafting a strategy for sharing information and help to prepare:
Social media posts
Short videos to share
Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like the Kidney Foundation to help share your story, or call the foundation at 716-529-4390.
If you have received a transplant and want to share your experience to encourage others, it would be great to hear from you too!
Additional resources for sharing your story include:
Having Your Donor Find YOU
Those in need of a kidney transplant can learn strategies for reaching potential living donors through a program now available online. The Kidney Foundation of Western New York has partnered with the Living Kidney Donors Network to make the video-based program available to people in our region. The program is free and kidney patients, families and medical professionals can register online at https://havingyourdonorfindyou.org/kfwny/
The Kidney Connection
The Kidney Connection is a WNY non-profit through which people in need of a kidney transplant can share their stories in order to connect with potential living donors. Stories and photos of many local people currently awaiting a transplant are at kidneyconnection.org.
