- Have questions about your personal transplant journey (as a potential donor, recipient, or caregiver)
- Need help navigating the transplant system
- Need help finding a living donor
Your transplant mentor can help. We have 146 active mentors including transplant recipients, living organ donors, and caregivers who speak 10 different languages.
American Transplant Foundation can connect you in touch with a trained volunteer mentor who knows what you are going though and can relate to your concerns. After all, our mentors are recipients, donors, or caregivers themselves. We have mentors for almost every type of solid organ transplant including kidney, liver, lung, and heart.
The program is completely free for mentors and mentees.
Mentees can choose to just have one conversation to get their questions answered or can opt to have a mentor to help them through the entire process. We currently have participants in 47 states and counting. Mentees can be kidney, liver, lung, pancreas, and/or heart transplant patients or their caregivers.
Our staff offers additional support for both mentors and mentees, whether it's in providing financial resources, help in organizing a living donor search party, or answering questions about social media campaigns to find a living donor.
If you would like us to send 1+1=LIFE Mentorship Program brochures to your hospital or transplant center, please send requests to Support@AmericanTransplantFoundation.org.
Thank you for your interest in joining the program and we look forward to helping you!
