Embedded thumbnail for Duc's Story

Duc knows what it’s like to wait. For three years, he’s been waiting for a kidney transplant – his second. Although advances are extending the life of transplanted organs, transplant failures remain. Failures are a significant hurdle for people like Duc, who must go back on the wait list and dialysis when their transplant fails. Duc’s wife and some of his relatives have been tested to determine if they are eligible to donate a kidney to him, but unfortunately, no one is a match.
