The National Kidney Donation Organization (NKDO) is the largest donor advocacy group in the country. NKDO educates prospective living kidney donors to donate as safely and effectively as possible. NKDO’s mission is to save lives by making living kidney donation more accessible through education and awareness and to remove obstacles to such donation. NKDO also works directly with kidney patients to assist in navigating the route to kidney transplantation. They are truly devoted to helping end the kidney crisis in this country. NKDO works closely with the National Kidney Registry (NKR) who provides the most comprehensive donor protections in the United States as well as improves donor-recipient matches for longer-lasting transplants. NKDO has been a fervent supporter of the efforts of The Organ Trail.
Hi! I’m Mark Scotch. Follow me on my kidney donation journey. My wife Lynn, and I share the knowledge gained regarding the need for living donors. I am here to prove that donors can return to their previous level of activity and good health, functioning only on a single kidney, even if that includes vigorously sustained activities.
