First of all, kudos to you for this amazing selfless act!

I believe אין דוחין נפש מפני נפש means you mustn't cause someone to die in order to save someone else from death.

In this situation, you are not causing anyone to die. On the contrary, you are doing a heroic selfless act in order to save a life. You are not obliged to donate a part of your body to save someone from death, yet you are bravely doing so! You certainly mayshould be able to choose who you would like to give this amazing gift of life to.

This is made more clear when you think of the fact that one is perfectly permitted to choose to donate a kidney to someone close to them even if there are others who need it more direly.

Good luck, and wishing you an easy and quick recovery from the operation!

P.S. There's a Jewish organisation for kidney donations called Matnat Chaim
