Life’s full of surprises one day you’re healthy and the next, you’re fighting kidney disease and preparing to undergo dialysis treatments that leave you fatigued and in pain every day. Luckily, there’s another option kidney donation and transplantation! The kidneys are two fist-sized organs located on either side of the spine just below the rib cage. Each kidney filters about 200 quarts of blood every day to produce about 1 quart of urine, removing waste products from your body. The kidneys also produce hormones that regulate blood pressure, red blood cell production and other important functions.
