 Serving the State of Nebraska

The Nebraska Kidney Association (NKA) has been serving the people of Nebraska for OVER 45 YEARS through programs and services.  We help others recognize their risk factors.  100% of all the money raised in Nebraska, stays in Nebraska helping our friends and neighbors.  Please contact us with any questions you may have, or to find out more about Kidney Disease.




APRIL IS DONATE LIFE MONTH

Despite continuing efforts at public education on the awareness of organ, eye and tissue donation and transplantation, and advances in medicine and technology, the gap between supply and demand continues.


The number of people on the national waiting list continues to grow. According to UNOS, as of today there are 123,364 total on the national waiting list who need a lifesaving transplant. Of that number, 408 are in Nebraska and 214 are waiting for either a kidney or a kidney/pancreas.


Every 10 minutes, someone is added to this national transplant list.


Most organs and tissue are donated by individuals at the time of death (one organ donor can save up to 8 lives); however, another way of obtaining organs for transplant is from a living donor. The most common of these living donations are kidneys but donations of bone marrow, or even small transplanted portions of liver, pancreas and lungs are possible.

If you have already signed up to be an organ donor, thank you! There is no greater gift. Or, if you are ready to add your name to the list, please go to www.nedonation.org.
