Living Donor Match is creating A Living Organ Donor Match Making Site

My name is Julie Daquelente and I have now found myself in the business of playing matchmaker... but not in the typical way you might think!

When researching living organ donation for myself, I realized that the majority of transplant centers (at least in the US) don't do altruistic liver donations.  What does this mean?  It means they only do directed donations to someone you know.  This then led me down the path of meeting many of those people via social media who are awaiting a life saving transplant and realizing just how broken the system is.

Here I was, ready and willing to donate part of my liver... here were these people who were going to die without a transplant... yet, there was nothing I could do because we didn't know each other.

And that just did not seem right.

So, when I see something that I think needs fixing, I do what I usually do.  Figure out how a website can help!

Living Donor Match was created to help willing living organ donors to connect with those awaiting transplant.  They can connect, build relationships and at the very least, make new friends.  Best case scenario, it results in a life saved.

As the site grows, I am committed to providing educational materials, support, and fundraising resources.  And I am committed to doing that for free because there doesn't need to be another barrier between those in need and those wanting to help.

Even if you can't donate an organ, you can still become a donor by becoming a Patron!
