Let’s talk about a kidney for Rob

There are more than 100,000 people on the national kidney transplant waiting list. This number is constantly changing as people are added to the list and others receive transplants.

The average wait time for a kidney transplant is 3.6 years, but this can vary depending on a number of factors, including blood type, medical urgency, and location. Every 9 minutes someone is added to the kidney transplant wait list, and 17 people die each day while waiting for a kidney transplant.

If you or someone you know is in need of a kidney transplant, there are a number of things you can do to increase your chances of getting a transplant. First, make sure you are listed with a transplant center. You can find a transplant center near you by visiting the United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) website. Second, talk to your doctor about your options for living donation. Living donation is a great option for many people, as it can shorten the wait time for a transplant and improve the chances of a successful transplant. Finally, stay healthy and take care of yourself. This will help you stay strong and healthy while you wait for a transplant.

If you are interested in becoming a living kidney donor, you can find more information on the UNOS website.
