The Hope-Through-Sharing Program lets patients waiting for a kidney to jump ahead of others on the list of a friend or relative, who is not a suitable match for the patient, donates a kidney to another recipient with whom the donor is compatible. Some people question if this is fair to donors who have no one able or willing to donate a kidney on their behalf.
