Kidney Korner

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.
