Anyone have any experience with Paired Exchange vouchers?

Posted by 2gallonhabit @2gallonhabit, Jul 24, 2022

Hi all. Does anyone have any experience with Paired Exchange vouchers? My donor was approved mid-April but we have not been matched as of mid-July. She'll be starting a new job by the end of summer so would like to donate before that happens. I've heard that I'd "go to the top of the list" if I have a voucher but would I have to wait for a non-directed donor before I'd be matched? Would this extend the amount of time to find a match even more? Thanks.

Edit: I found an article that explained that since I'm in need of transplant, it wouldn't be a voucher situation but instead a Short-Term or Short-Term Swap Saver situation. Does anyone have experience with that? Thanks again.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Transplants Support Group.

Oh. I've also reached out to my transplant nurse but thought I'd ask the experts while I wait 😉

@2gallonhabit – I wish that I had some experience to share with you. I hope that you hear from your transplant nurse soon, maybe tomorrow, when the workweek begins.
