Your Kidneys & You

The National Kidney Foundation's Your Kidneys and You program was developed to raise awareness among the public and individuals at risk for kidney disease by educating them about kidneys, risk factors for kidney disease, and what can be done to protect kidneys.

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.
