The Missing Piece is a window into the world of kidney transplant recipients and donors.  These powerful, first-hand accounts, written by patients at Michigan Medicine, provide frank glimpses into the highs and the lows experienced by those struggling with a life-altering illness.  The contributing authors discuss the coping techniques that worked and those that did not; how they knew when it was time to consider dialysis; and, how they shared their experiences and news with family, friends, and even complete strangers in a quest for a donation from a living donor. 
This uplifting book contains practical advice and a helpful list of resources for patients and family members.  It is a must-read for those who are facing dialysis and/or kidney transplant and for those considering becoming a living donor.  
The book’s editor has dedicated this book to new patients, understanding that patient-to-patient communication is a unique and effective way to improve patient and family education.  Proceeds from this book will be used to improve the patient experience at Michigan Medicine.
