Please, Accept My Kidney: Kidney Donors in African American Families

Our research explores the experiences of five African-American living kidney donors and the reasons behind the decision to donate a kidney to a family member. We find that some organ donation may be self-gifting, and that the relationships between donors and recipients may evolve due to this self-gifting.
