I am extremely fortunate to have such support. Many people in need of a new kidney have no family or friends willing or able to donate.
Several factors determine the suitability of a donor. Blood type is key, but the donor's health is almost as important. The donor must be able to afford to lose a kidney. Near-perfect health is required. For instance, smokers, diabetics or people with high blood pressure are almost always disqualified. The ideal donor is also between the ages of 18 and 55.
