Recently, a new online community hit the scene: Transplant Alliance. Members can join each other for live chat or post on discussion boards, can create pages, form groups and identify friends, and more. So far there are 52 members — the site is still new. You can find my page there under the name “ChoppedLiver,” and I’ve also created a living donor group as a place to focus conversation on the issues unique to our experience. I’m adding a perma-link to Transplant Alliance to the General Resources set of links in the right hand column.
This new site is similar in mission and purpose to the Transplant Cafe, an older and larger community of 750-plus members (with a massive amount of content) that I have blogged about before. Join one, join both! That site also has a page for yours truly under “Chopped Liver,” and a Living Donors Group that’s now 16 living donor members strong.
