This website is initiated by the Erasmus MC Rotterdam. Erasmus MC is the largest center in Europe for living kidney donation. Over the past decades, extensive experience has been gained on the removal and transplant of kidneys from living donors, as well as with the counseling and psychological support of donors and recipients. On this website we provide you with information about living kidney donation and the diverse transplant options. Kidney patients, donors and relatives share their experiences on this website.
“I couldn’t handle it!”
Anneleen Mol couldn’t handle the fact that her neighbour Kim was ill. She donated her kidney. “She wasn’t able to take of her children. That’s not the way it should go. I needed to do something! Therefore I decided to donate my kidney.”
You can watch the video with Anneleen and Kim’s story here. On this website you can find more stories of kidney donors and patients. You can respond to stories if you’d like. You can also find all the information you need about living kidney donation. If you have any questions, you can contact our panel.
