MatchingDonors.com has become the most successful nonprofit, award-winning organization in the world that is improving those odds by finding living, altruistic organ donors for patients needing organ transplants. Most patients find their living, altruistic donor organ and get their lifesaving organ transplant within six months of joining MatchingDonors.com. MatchingDonors.com is not an invitee-only list; everyone needing an organ transplant is allowed on our list regardless if they are poor, old or sick. As long as a patient is registered at a transplant hospital in the United States willing to perform the transplant operation, everyone is considered a “good candidate for a transplant” with MatchingDonors.com.
Every day in the United States 22 people die waiting 7-15 years on the government's invitee-only national organ transplant waiting list for a deceased organ transplant that will most likely never come while an additional 253 people die every day needing an organ transplant that were not allowed on the government’s list because they were too poor, too old or too sick to be considered a “good candidate for a transplant.” A new patient’s name is added to this national organ transplant waiting list every 13 minutes.
The team at MatchingDonors.com has been working hard for the past ten years to make sure that doesn’t happen anymore. Most patients find their living, altruistic donor organ and get their lifesaving organ transplant within only six months of joining MatchingDonors.com.
