Project Description

Just a Kidney

Driven by first hand experience, CEO Marcelle Chaffin understands Waitlisted Kidney Transplant Recipients' needs and the current barriers that result in long wait times for kidney transplants – less than 20% of the waitlist, annually, find a match and undergo a kidney transplant. Chaffin is passionate about making the process better and the pool of Living Kidney Donor resources greater as she has been going through the process herself.

Her husband Ed has been waiting for 4 years for a kidney transplant and together they have been inside the system experiencing the impact that 4 years of his dialysis treatment has had on their family – physically, mentally and financially. 

Her Just a Kidney concept brings a new solution to the process of connecting Living Kidney Donors and Waitlisted Kidney Transplant Recipients by providing a social networking platform dedicated to finding potential matches through a qualified community.

SAVING LIVES BY CONNECTING PEOPLE!

The goal for Just a Kidney is to raise awareness of the need for more Living Kidney Donors and a platform for Waitlisted Kidney Transplant Recipients to tell their story! Just a Kidney will facilitate connections, not matches, with the intent of offering an ample pool of potential resources in one easy to use friendly place to foster greater matching potential.

The search criteria will be similar to social media platforms that use personal "likes" and locations (e.g., where someone currently resides, hometowns, high schools, and Alma Maters) versus providing medical profiles. After a connection is made, Members will move forward with external professional medical testing to determine if they are a viable match. Within the Just a Kidney community, Members seek each other out through common interests and experiences simplifying the search process for a match, and making it more natural and relatable.
