Paying it Forward with Kidney Paired Donation

"Our first exchange involved a mother-son pair from Toledo and a married couple from Cincinnati, and it was a great success. Soon enough, people from outside Ohio started asking to work with us." - Susan Rees, RN, BSN, Alliance for Paired Kidney Donation

Transplant technology has advanced considerably in recent years, notably through the adoption of a transformative innovation called kidney paired donation (KPD), which pools living donors and recipients to increase the likelihood of matches. Susan Rees, RN, BSN, of Perrysburg, Ohio, has been involved in KPD for more than 16 years, first as a clinical transplant coordinator and now through her work with the Alliance for Paired Kidney Donation (APKD), a non-profit organization devoted to KPD.
