In brief: Your contact info

There is no magic.
The transplant center can only use the information that you provide for contact. You must be certain to update them with new changes in your phone #, alternate phone #'s, other contact people, your dialysis center phone #, etc. Remember that the team only has one hour in which to accept or reject the kidney that is offered for you. If they can't reach you - no transplant.
