@hopeful33250 Teresa, I really don't have have questions at this time. I have read a lot about the donor and recipient process. When I asked for donors, I had 2 people talk to me. Neither one qualified to donate. I learned this by talking to my donors not my transplant coordinator. I am not aware of anyone else who has contacted Mayo about being a donor. I have been told by my coordinator that if a living donor is approved by Mayo, Mayo will not tell me. Once a donor has been approved, the donor will be told that it is their responsibility to contact me and let me know. Then my donor, my transplant coordinator and I will work together to schedule the transplant.

Thanks for helping me to understand this process, @marvinjsturing.

That has been my experience as well. My donor told me about 6 weeks ago she was going to Rochester for screening and has kept me updated throughout. I do know that others have registered but have not heard if any were a match. As of now We are waiting to get scheduled…will probably need to wait until elective surgery is available again.
