1+1=LIFE
Mentorship
Program

The purpose of the 1+1=LIFE Mentorship Program is to provide a free, unparalleled support service to those on the transplant wait list, living donors, transplant recipients, and caretakers. We believe no one should have to go through the process alone, and that everyone should have their questions answered.

The purpose of the 1+1=LIFE Mentorship Program is to provide a free, unparalleled support service to those on the transplant wait list, living donors, transplant recipients, and caretakers. We believe no one should have to go through the process alone, and that everyone should have their questions answered.  

If you...

  • Have questions about your personal transplant journey (as a potential donor, recipient, or caregiver)
  • Would like to have emotional or educational support from someone who has gone through a transplant journey personally
  • Need help navigating the transplant system
  • Need help finding a living donor

YOUR TRANSPLANT MENTOR CAN HELP. 


Need a Mentor?

We have 260+ active mentors including transplant recipients, living organ donors, and caregivers who speak 12 different languages. 

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 all 50 states. Mentees can be potential donors, 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.

Please note that the matching process is approximately 2 weeks from when we receive your application as we aim to create the best possible match between mentor and mentee.

* If you ever feel you need psychological help, we encourage you to call 211 for local resources and/or speak with your doctor.

Thank you for your interest in joining the program and we look forward to helping you!
