the big ask, the big give: The first steps to transplant webinar
Are you or someone you know in need of a kidney transplant? Unsure how to get the word out, or even how to bring up the subject with anyone? We can help!
THE BIG ASK: For people with kidney disease, asking someone to consider donating a kidney can seem impossible. Many won’t get a transplant because they don’t know how to ask or are uncomfortable with asking. NKFI provides suggestions and tips on how to start a conversation about the possibility of donation.
THE BIG GIVE: The decision about whether to donate a kidney can be daunting. People considering living donation have many questions about what’s involved. NKFI offers factual, unbiased information addressing common concerns and support in making the decision.
