Living Donor Advocate
Your Living Donor Advocate plays a key role in your journey.
A Living Donor Advocate gives support to organ donors and makes sure their rights and interests are protected while avoiding contact with the person who’s supposed to receive the organ. Donor Advocates also make sure you’re not being pressured to donate an organ. The advocate can also help potential donors throughout the donation process and answer questions privately and without judgement.
Living Donor Assistant
Your Living Donor Assistant plays a key role in your journey.
A living donor assistant is often a donor’s first point of contact with the transplant team. They help you with medical records requests, keep you informed of your status, schedule appointments, and answer questions in the early phases of your organ donation journey.

A living donor coordinator is a registered nurse who helps educate you about living donation and works as a case manager throughout the process. Coordinators also make sure any tests and evaluations you need are done. They also keep you updated about your results and progress. Potential donors are contacted by a Living Donor Coordinator after the questionnaire is reviewed to answer questions and discuss the donation process.
