    Have you looked into paired transplants or domino transplants? I know sometimes that can be an option, as well as just getting the word out to friends and family. I'm not in your area nor am I a kidney recipient so I may not be the best person to speak to this, but I always recommend checking with your transplant social worker for options that may work for you

    @Kidney4mohak i’m not sure if they’re done a lot in the states (I’m in Canada) but the idea is a train of people (not just 2) where one person donates to another who donates to another and all the way around.

    Hello!

    I posted this on another post, which may be a ways back, but have you considered "Advance donation-voucher program"? I have heard family members/close friends would donate for someone and they would get a kidney with the "voucher". I have put information below from UW Health's (Madison, WI) website. It could be something you look into to.

    I hope you find a kidney! 😊

    Advanced donation – voucher program

    This type of donation happens if you are ready to donate now, but your intended recipient does not yet need a transplant but may in the future. It is a paired-exchange donation through the National Kidney Registry, but there is time between when you donate and when your intended recipient gets a kidney. A voucher will be provided based on the timing:

    • Standard voucher: Given to your intended recipient who needs a kidney transplant within the next year.
    • Family voucher: Given to up to five intended recipients who will not likely need a transplant within the next year. If any of these five people ever need a kidney transplant, they would get a living donor kidney.

    This type of advanced donation helps if you are ready to donate but have a window of time when you can donate. This could happen if you have a job like teaching, or if you have a life event that must be avoided, like a wedding or travel.

    I am not able to due to a liver transplant and I don't know of anyone off hand that can donate. Like @AliEm14 said above, I would talk with you transplant coordinator/social workers or even your doctors about you options.

    @Kidney4mohak being a transplant recipient, even of a liver, means I am unable to donate a kidney to someone else. My process is very different than yours will be so for your specific situation it’s best to ask your social worker
