Many healthy individuals are hesitant to pursue the prospect of being a living kidney donor because they are fearful of the process. They believe that it is dangerous and can impact their short-term and/or long-term health and survival. By-and-large, this is completely understandable, but the facts suggest that serving as a living kidney donor is not only safe, it is both straightforward and highly rewarding. This is what the kind-hearted, generous selfless donor, Allyssa Bates, came to find after she donated to her brother. Now she is on a mission to educate people about the donation process from the donor's perspective (view the video below).
