@cowguy – I have been through the donor process at Mayo. Many preliminary tests can be completed locally before the testing AT Mayo. Some of your travel expenses may be covered by the recipient's insurance. You should also check with NLDAC – National Living Donor Assistance Center. Talk to the Mayo transplant center about application for reimbursement of your travel expenses through NLDAC. If you can get this approved before you have to travel, they may be able to cover travel, lost wages, and dependent care expenses related to your evaluation trip, transplant, and follow-up visits. See http://www.livingdonorassistance.org for more information and be sure to ask the folks at Mayo!

@bru2 Thank you for this information! I am sure it will help others looking for information on being a living donor.

I see this is your first post, and you have been a member since Sept 2020. Was going through the living donor evaluation successful for you? When you first came to Mayo Clinic Connect, what brought you here?
