ARTICLES

Kid-U-Not has compiled a list of reliable articles on living organ donation.

We have included articles that discuss medical and general trends in living donation. But please note, this is not a comprehensive data base.  These are just some of the articles that the Kid-U-Not team thinks may be of use or interest to you, a potential living organ donor.

We have intentionally included both positive and negative articles in the interest of providing you with a wide range of information.​​​

We welcome your suggestions for articles that might be helpful for living donors, but we would like to refrain from articles published before 2013. Please send your suggestions via email to [email protected]
