Hi and welcome to our website to advocate for Bruce Clark formerly from Iowa, currently residing in West Hartford, CT. As you may know, Bruce is looking for some incredibly kind and generous person to step up and be living kidney donor. We will briefly explain what the process of being a living donor entails.

After an initial successful phone interview with the transplant clinic at Yale/New Haven, a potential donor will continue with medical and psychological assessments conducted by phone and/or near where the individual lives. We are never given names of any potential donors; it is all anonymous. When a donor is identified, that person will be brought to Yale for the procedure, with hospitalization generally just a few days. The donor will then be allowed to return home for a continued recovery for usually 2-4 weeks. That person will then return to normal life with 1 fully functional kidney. If for any reason the donor needs a kidney transplant in the future, that individual will be put at the top of the list to receive a transplant. To begin the process or to learn more about it, contact the Yale-New Haven Transplantation Center online at or call them at 866-925-3897. It is anonymous, no commitment required, and all of this is at no expense to the donor.

In the Journal section of this site we have posted information about Bruce's story, explaining about how he has arrived at this point. All that we are asking of you is if you, a member of your family, a friend, ANYONE, has any interest of learning more, read on and please contact the Transplant Clinic if you are so inclined. The members of Bruce's family thank you very much for your time and consideration.

This is being co-authored by Brian Clark (son) and Richard Alper (husband). You can address any questions or concerns to either of them.
