The statistics are startling...kidney disease is the 9th leading cause of death in the United States, causing more deaths than breast cancer and prostate cancer combined. 26 million Americans - that's one in nine adults - have kidney disease and most don't know it. In the Washington, DC area, 700,000 people are affected, 7,000 are on dialysis, and 1,500 are waiting for a life-saving kidney transplant.
The National Kidney Foundation is the leading organization in the U.S. dedicated to the awareness, prevention, and treatment of kidney disease. Proceeds from the gala support research, patient services, public and professional education, and organ donation awareness.
