Man desperate for a kidney donor


“I can’t begin to state what an incredible resource Square Knot has been. They helped streamline facets of the transplant process and eliminate preventable delays when every minute counts. They were the missing link, tying together me, my transplant center and my nephrologist. They also guided potential donors with their questions and concerns, and provided feedback on what to expect and pitfalls to avoid. The type of insight and guidance they provide can only come from someone with a lot of experience. They help me overcome my fears, and answered my questions, and gave me overwhelming confidence about transplant that I would not have had without them. I highly recommend Square Knot Health and Dr. Heher!”

“Transplant Centers don’t have the manpower to lead people through the process. They put up barriers. A service to guide people to transplant would be very valuable.”
