Can you tell me about being a living organ donor?

Surgery - Transplant

In brief: Kidney/liver/marrow

Humans can donate both organs and tissues that can be used in other humans.
The most commonly donated tissue is blood - thousands of times each day. Less commonly, you can donate bone marrow, or solid organs such as kidney and liver. There are risks to all types of donation, though donating blood and bone marrow have few risks. Donating a kidney or portion of liver requires surgery with more risks
