If you don't have a living donor, you will be joining 95,000 patients on the kidney transplant waiting list. There are not enough kidneys for the many patients waiting and when your turn comes, not every kidney will match you. This is why some patients wait more than 5 years for their kidney. Konnectology helps you shorten your wait.
