Where did you hear about Transplant Friends?

I am working on a project to better understand the transplant experience - many of the folks I have spoken with have recommended I reach out to this group!

Are You Male or Female?


Share - which illness led up to you needing a transplant?

I don't need a transplant myself, I am an anthropologist on the Muse Storytelling team. We're an Emmy award winning team of storytellers and filmmakers working with Transplant Genomics to help tell the story of transplant recipients, and to create a film to help empower patients to be more involved in decisions around their care.

Which Organ(s) did you receive? If you are on the waiting list, please share.

I have not received an organ.

How many years have you had your Transplant for?


I am Interested in Transplant Friends because...

I would like to learn from this incredibly resilient and inspiring group of people.

Which Transplant Center has or will perform your life saving surgery?

  • Hi Ivy.......I see you project is about kidney transplants. I had a liver tx. Hopefully you will extend your research to include other organs to.

  • Welcome Ivy, so good to see that people are interested to know more. If you need any information you are always welcome to contact me. Good luck with you project.

  • Welcome Ivy to TransplantFriends!  To help facilitate your research, may I suggest posting your request for interviews and contact in the form of a "Discussion," to introduce yourself and reach more members, over time, as they log in on their own schedule.  Good luck with this project.
