No kidney left behind: reviving kidneys for transplant
New research suggests it could now be possible to revive and recondition kidneys for transplant that might otherwise be discarded.
Around 5,000 people in the UK are waiting for a kidney transplant, but only 3,200 transplants happen each year. The research being done at Newcastle University, led by Dr Emily Thompson, could one day improve the number and quality of donated kidneys.
Andy Cole has set up the Andy Cole Fund to help people like him, who are living with kidney disease. The money raised goes towards vital research into transplants and the best ways to support patients’ mental health and wellbeing.
Support the Andy Cole Fund today and help kick kidney disease to the sideline. Together we can change the game.
