Each donor has unique circumstances. They may have a spouse/partner or be on their own, have children, have good or perhaps no medical insurance, have savings or live hand to mouth.
Any major surgery and recovery entails logistics, risk, and potential complications.
ALODF is there for each, individual living donor, with his or her individual needs.
American Living Organ Donor Fund and network
Our primary purpose is to help living organ donors thrive.
Potential living organ donors need to be fully informed. A living organ donor's transplant teams are the front lines. Every front line needs strong reinforcements. ALODF, a 501 c3 nonprofit, was founded in 2014 by Sigrid Fry-Revere and Michael Mittelman. Due to success and continued need the American Living Organ Donor Fund's services available to help living organ donors has expanded to address multiple needs, not just funding. It provides information for donors, educates the public on living organ donation, and works on policy initiatives to protect living donor rights. The Fund has an online support group exclusively serves former and prospective donors with close to 250 members. Recently, Individual pro-bono counseling has become option. ALODF continues to evolve and expand, joining forces with professionals and nonprofits from many domains. ALODF has never turned any living donor away without help and the team describes their primary mission as follows,
Our one and only goal is to help American living organ donors so it is easier for them to save the lives of fellow Americans.
There are plenty of organizations that help transplant recipients and their families, but few with the primary purpose of helping make organ donors’ lives safer and easier, with all the services and assistance someone who saves another person’s life deserves. These services often are needed by people who might be prevented from donating for socioeconomic reasons, but we help all donors regardless of economic status. We believe no donor should suffer financially for his/her good deed.
