Matching donors.com is salvation for people who will die without a kidney transplant. This organization saves lives in a tangible, immediate way. There is a tragic deficit of organs for transplant in our society and Matchingdonors.com is one of the rare organizations doing anything about it.
I used it in 2006 and the process was easy to follow and efficient. I ended up getting a kidney from a friend, but had she not come along, MatchingDonors would have been my lifeline.
About 3 years ago our son lost his kidneys, due to diabetes. This required him to go on dialysis 3 days a week for four and a half hours. About a year and a half later, after siblings, family members and some friends were eliminated as donors, we were led to the Matching Donors website. It took almost 10 months of correspondence with a number of possibilities for us to find the perfect match. This altruistic young man lives in Seattle WA, 2600 miles away. He was willing to make two round trips, totaling 10,000 miles in order to be a donor for our son. I do not believe that we would have met this wonderful person without the help of Matching Donors. It is considered to be a miracle by me, my husband, our family and many friends and associates.
MatchingDonors.com has the distinction of boasting that it is among the minority of dot com ventures that promises something incredible and delivers on that promise. My father, whose renal system was only working with the aid of dialysis, received a kidney from a living donor in less than a year's time from posting a profile on MatchingDonors.com. The administrators of the web matching service were of enormous help in making this match happen and seeing the process through, ultimately extending the life of my father. And for a minimal fee. MatchingDonors.com is a heroic organization that provides a life extending solution by facilitating community, caring and individual people helping each other.
