What is an “Altruistic Donor”?
An Altruistic Donor, also referred to a non-directed donor, is an individual that has the desire to donate one of their kidneys to an individual whom they do not know. Being an altruistic donor and giving someone the opportunity to live their life free of dialysis, diet and fluid restrictions is a very noble act and through this generous gift, they are saving an individual’s life.
An altruistic donor will be required to have the same medical tests as a directed donor.
