Welcome! I'm Pastor Nick Gentile and I'm so happy you found my website. I'm the founder of Compassion Match. By the Grace of God, in 2019 I donated my Kidney after a 10 1/2 year pursuit to be a an Kidney Donor. Less than 1 1/2 years after doing that, in November of 2020, I was blessed to donate 70% of my liver to a friend who was dying of liver disease.
Although I was thankful and blessed that the Lord allowed me to be a double organ donor to demonstrate His love by helping people in need, I wanted to do more than just be a donor. I wanted to make a greater difference or impact. So, I created Compassion Match. A Christ Centered Ministry with the following objectives:
Advocating for Living Organ Donation, Public Education, Disease Prevention, and Combatting Organ Trafficking.
One of my great passions is to help Future Kidney Recipients (FKR) or those in need of a Kidney Transplant find a Living Kidney Donor like myself. One of the ways I do that is by interviewing those people to provide them with a platform to tell their story and to advocate on their own behalf; which is empowering. You can watch those interviews here.
PROFILES: Every person I've interviewed has their own profile on this website. Check them out and please thoughtfully and prayerfully consider choosing one of the people in need to get tested for them. Remember, it only takes one person to chosen to give them the gift of life, and by God's Grace, you could be that hero!
This website has a lot of very good educational information regarding Chronic Kidney Disease and End Stage Renal Disease and powerful information regarding the living Kidney Donation process. My hope is that this website will serve as a great hub of information and prove to be very beneficial for prospective living Kidney Donors.
Make sure to check out the entire website and take advantage of the information and share what you read!
Christ bless you and keep you,
Pastor Nick Gentile
