If you have participated in our Kidney Champion Program, you may remember learning that a great way to make your inner and outer spheres of influence aware of your situation is to have an in-home gathering.
An in-home gathering is typically an informal event where you invite your friends and family members to your home for a 45 minute presentation on living donation. The goal of this is to help your loved ones understand what your needs are, and to learn ways that they can advocate for your situation. The goal is not to convince people that they should donate an organ to you, however often times, this is one of the outcomes of a home gathering.
If you would like a member of Transplant Village to help you navigate or facilitate a gathering, please contact Laure Lee for more information by emailing Laurie@transplantvillage.org.
