A conversation can save a life.

The Big Ask, The Big Give

Often the hardest part for someone with kidney failure is asking a loved one or friend to become a donor. Whether you need a kidney or are considering donation, let us help you start the conversation. Living donation makes better lives possible. Please contact Tasha Burks at Tasha.Burks@kidney.org or 502.585.5433 ext. 842 for more information.
