Gary needs your help. Diabetes has robbed Gary of his kidneys and he needs a donor now!

ARE YOU A POTENTIAL DONOR?

You don’t have to be a perfect match to be Gary’s donor. UM has a Paired Kidney Exchange Program that can identify donor recipient pairs in a similar circumstance and exchange the donor kidney to achieve a compatible match for transplantation. Learn more below.

Miami Transplant Institute’s Paired Kidney Exchange Program

The Miami Transplant Institute’s Paired Kidney Exchange Program is a live donor exchange program maintained by the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Hospital. The goal of the Exchange Program is to increase live kidney donor transplants by identifying compatible donor-recipient pairs. Participants of the Exchange Program include individuals who wish to donate a kidney to a particular potential recipient but cannot do so because of an incompatible blood type or crossmatch test. The Exchange Program seeks to identify donor recipient pairs in a similar circumstance and exchange the donor kidney to achieve a compatible match for transplantation.
