Kidney Patients: Audition for Abundant Now!
The bottom line: The Abundant team wants to help as many people who need a kidney donation as possible. We're taking a cue from The Living Kidney Donors Network, a respected non-profit that helps kidney patients help themselves find a donor. LKDN's approach teaches kidney patients to create greater awareness about their need. Abundant endorses and applauds LKDN's efforts and here's how we can help.
