2. Choose if you live in the Western New York area, the Rochester area, the Albany area or the Northwest Pennsylvania are.   Click on the “Add to” box.

3.  Fill in the form with your personal information, including your blood type.

4.  Write a story about yourself and your need of a kidney transplant.  Be specific, tell of your family and pets, your interests.  Write it as personal as you are comfortable doing.  Donors want to see you as a human being and not just as a number on a waiting list.

5.  VERY IMPORTANT!!  Include a photo.  This means an awful lot to a donor.  If you are not comfortable with a photo of yourself then include one of your family or your pets.

6.  Submit your profile to the Kidney Connection and we will put it on the website.

7.  Once you see your profile you will notice that there are buttons to share it on Facebook or in emails, etc.  send it out to your family and friends. Remember to check your emails everyday and respond immediately if someone contacts you.  Keep in mind that you may receive some offers from people in other countries, our advice is to ignore these requests and also ignore any where there is a reference of paying for a kidney.  It is illegal to buy or sell an organ. You are allowed by law to pay for travel, food, lodging and loss of wages to your donor.
