• Thank you so much for putting up this website. I cannot thank you enough, because of your website i managed to receive a kidney transplant from Iowa Methodist in less than 90 days of becoming active on their list. I had been enduring dialysis waiting for a kidney in Chicago IL for about a couple of years. I always took my notebook computer with me to dialysis to keep me busy... being fed up one day i started a google search and came across your webpage. Lo and behold here i am transplanted all because of your work.

  • We have been hearing about this amazing web site finally a patient a few months ago gave us the link. You are offering a great service for patients.

  • As a dialysis social worker in an area with 10+ year waiting lists for transplant, I just want to thank you for all your hard work on this website. It is a tool I just recently discovered and now share with my patients on a regular basis to help them find other centers to be listed at. I have previously suggested to patients that they look into centers outside our area without seeing much interest, but being able to show them the map on the reduce wait tab has really enabled them to SEE the difference and the possibilities! I just recently started referring more patients to various centers of their choosing outside the Los Angeles area and I can't wait to see how many patients are able to get a transplant more quickly because of it. Thank you

  • I am very excited to move forward in finding a Kidney after my nephrologist at

    Washington Nephrology Associates

    shared with me this website last week. I only wish he would have done it earlier.

  • This is a GREAT website! I wish this was around when we first got my husband listed in the transplant system 5 years ago.

  • My wife received her call from Iowa Methodist [Aug 2016]; her wait time was right at 2 months. I cannot thank you enough for the work you have done on your site. We flew to Iowa in a private jet that was donated from a business owner in our town. Thanks again for all you do to get the word out. We are forever grateful. Here is our story.

  • Just a follow on my venture for the past couple of months. After viewing your list, I contacted Iowa Methodist. Two weeks later they scheduled me for an evaluation. Two weeks later they accepted me into their Program. We moved to Des Moines two weeks ago and I received my Transplant Yesterday [May 2016] after being on their list for 2 weeks. Thank you very much for your research. My heartfelt Appreciation for you and your dedication for the transplant patients

  • I was transplanted at Plaza Medical Center in Ft Worth TX [November 2015] after being on the list two and a half months. This would NOT have happened without your website. My wife and I truly appreciate your contribution to our new life.

  • I guess $13,500 [to hire a private jet ] sounds like a lot of money until your life depends on it. You have me excited to get started.

  • Without your website, I wouldn't even consider to list on the Nebraska Transplant Center. My only regret is I should have known your website sooner. I am sure that many pre-transplant patients like me will benefit from your website.

  • My father received a kidney through the Des Moines hospital [June 2016] - he has just been smiling a lot more, and has much more hope for his future. You have made such a difference in our lives. Thank you so very much for all the incredible information you shared, your generosity of time and insight and for all your compassion and caring.

  • The great news is that I just received a transplant from Johns Hopkins three weeks ago [March 2016]. I owe you a great deal. If not for your information, I would have stuck to the three NYC area hospitals (8-13 year waits). Instead, I searched for reasonable OPO's, and all were a pretty good bet (U of Vermont, Hopkins, and Cleveland Clinic Florida). I ended up with the most incredible world class hospital. Unbelievable experience. Thank you - profusely - for your amazing work, research, website, and our communications. You've done an amazing service.

  • Because of your site I have contacted and gone to Iowa Methodist Transplant Center [March 2015] and got transplanted there [June 2015]. I would not have known about this place had it not been for you. I think your site is great and a vast improvement of info now available opposed to 20 years ago

  • I've essentially been discouraged from being multiply listed, and starting to become very concerned about my future. I am very interested in doing something to move things along. It's almost like playing slots in Vegas: the house always wins. I hope you can provide some insight into how this game is supposed to be played. I appreciate any assistance you can provide. Congratulations on your win.
