There are over 72,000 people waiting to receive kidney transplants. It seems almost impossible to find an equal amount of donors. Now, there is a new process in place called Paired Donation. The Paired Donation Network assists patients in finding compatible donors. A couple (donor and recipient) is paired with another couple (donor and recipient) to exchange kidneys. This process may be the answer to the shortage of Kidney donors.
