Making Matches that Save Lives
Connecting Potential Living Donors with Recipients
We provide the tools and opportunities for those awaiting a life saving transplant to connect with potential living donors that they would otherwise never meet. Through initiating these relationships we hope to help people make connections that surpass political, religious, and socioeconomic barriers and focus on the humanity of the situation. When you save a life by becoming a living organ donor, your donation not only has a direct impact on the recipient, but also on their family, friends, co-workers, communities, and probably most of all, yourself.
We provide potential living organ donors with education, support, and a place to connect with your match.
We provide those awaiting transplant with free tools to help you share your story, help you spread the word, and actively work to help you find your life saving match.
The First Match
What Started it All
Julie Daquelente, founder of Living Donor Match, had known since high school that she wanted to be a living organ donor. After being turned away by multiple transplant centers in the summer of 2018 because she didn’t have a specific recipient for her liver donation and was wanting to donate altruistically, she realized something needed to be done.
