Kidneys keep you alive and kicking. They tackle blood pressure and keep it down. They play defense against kidney stones and keep your body on top of its game 24/7. Yet, when it comes to vital organs, the other frontline players, like the heart, get all the attention. For Pro-football Hall-of-Famer Jerry Rice, kidney health is a personal cause: his brother Tom has chronic kidney disease. He now joins the National Kidney Foundation in a public awareness campaign to make kidney health part of everyday conversation and give kidneys the attention they deserve.
