DOVE was honored to be part of a diverse coalition of organ donation advocates to lobby for The Living Donor Support Act of 2022 (S.1594/A.146-A)
This Bill reimburses living organ donors the financial cost of saving a life, such as lost wages, travel, and childcare expenses.
It also ensures that all patients eligible for transplant receive high quality
education about the procedure.
It is an urgent priority across the transplant field,
and a much-needed component of the transplant support agenda.
Organ donors are humanitarians and public servants!
They save lives and decrease the high cost of chronic dialysis care. They need adequate protections and to ensure there are no financial barriers to anyone who wishes to be an organ donor.
