LIVE DONATION
Most organ and tissue donations occur after the donor has died. But some organs and tissues can be donated while the donor is alive. Nearly 6,000 living donations take place each year. That’s about 4 out of every 10 donations.Most living donations happen among family members or between close friends. Some people become altruistic living donors by choosing to donate to someone they don’t know.Live Donation is from a healthy and living person. This can only be done in the case of a liver or a kidney (because the liver can grow back to its normal size, and a donor can survive on one kidney). So if a near relative of yours needs a liver or a kidney, anyone in the immediate family can donate to them.
