We impact lives
Kidney disease impacts people’s lives in a way that is unimaginable. We didn’t know that it was an option to donate. It didn’t change much for me, but it changed so much for the person that I gave the kidney to.
Thank you to the National Kidney Foundation for education, preparation and support aiding me to communicate my story and find a living donor. I am forever grateful for the insight and tools provided.
My kidney function came down to 9%. It was a shock. I had just gotten married. We had plans. The information on this website and everything I’d learned over the years is what got me through this.
