How long does it take if a person is in need, just find out the kidney is failing, and needs a transplant from a family member?

If you have kidney failure, then you must first be evaluated by a kidney transplant center to determine if you are eligible for listing on the kidney transplant list.  Once you are on the list, then family members can be evaluated.  This can take a variable amount of time and there is no way to forecast how long this might take.
