Living donor candidates should be in good physical and mental health and free of diseases that would exclude them from donation, including diabetes, cancer, HIV/AIDS, hepatitis and organ diseases. Living donors may have a recipient in mind or may choose to donate as a good Samaritan to someone they don’t know.
