Transplants Friends are all the people with a big heart, a gentle touch, people who have so much to give and ask nothing in return.

Croatia - "Life As A Gift" ("Zivot Na Dar")

In Crotian/English/German/Italian/French
Kartica je prvi puta predstavljena na "Drugom hrvatskom simpoziju o supstitucijskom liječenju renalne insuficijencije i transplantacijskoj medicini s medjunarodnim sudjelovanjem" u studenom 1996. god.
Kako bi se na životu održali mnogi bolesnici oboljeli od neizlječivih bolesti, danas se u svijetu provode uspješna presađivanja bubrega, jetre, srca, koštane srži i drugih organa i tkiva. Najveci broj presađivanja provodi se zbog kroničnog zatajenja bubrežne funkcije. U Evropi i SAD provodi se godišnje na desetine tisuća presađivanja i to uglavnom s umrlih osoba. Usprkos tome broj organa premalen je za zadovoljenje potreba.
The first public presentation of the Card was on the "Second Croatian conference about substitution therapy of renal insufficiency and transplant medicine" in November 1996.
In order to maintain in life many people suffering from incurable diseases, the modern medicine everywhere in the world practises successful transplantations of kidneys, liver, heart, pancreas, bone marrow, and other tissues. The largest number of transplants is done due to chronic renal insufficiency. There are dozens of thousands transplantations in the USA and in Europe each year, mostly of deceased persons. In spite of that the number of available organs is still too small to satisfy the needs.
