People with kidney disease and transplant recipients are at higher risk for developing serious complications from COVID-19. Therefore, National Kidney Foundation has dedicated an entire section of our website to resources and information for kidney patients and their loved ones.
Trained specialists are just a call, click, or e-mail away if you have questions about how the COVID-19 pandemic will affect you.

Leslie Day lost her Father to kidney disease the same day that her classmate, Katherine Dostart, found out that she needed a kidney. To Leslie, this was a sign from God saying "do for Katherine what you can't do for your Dad." Leslie said that she didn't think she could go on living her life knowing that she had something to save Kate's life. The two were simply classmates, and now share the gift of life. They were both actively involved in the Kidney Walk this year and continue to show their support to the NKF.
