Thanks to many generous donors I am one-third closer to my Kidney Walk fundraising goal. I appreciate the support and hope to see you all at the "Shrine on Airline", Sunday, November 6 at 10a. For more information or to register visit www.kidneywalk.org/NOLA
Why do I walk?I walk because too many families are coping with this devastating chronic illness, and thousands more will face an unexpected kidney disease diagnosis in the year to come. Alas, the kidney patient population is increasing as more patients with COVID are diagnosed with chronic kidney disease.
I walk because too many individuals die waiting for a life-saving kidney transplant.
I walk to increase awareness about living organ donation.
I walk knowing that I am a resource for those patients who need assistance - financial, mental or medical.
I walk because one day, one of you, may need the programs of the National Kidney Foundation of Louisiana.
I walk because I will not let you down!
I walk to support the life-changing work of the National Kidney Foundation:
- To ensure that families will have a place to turn when they need answers.
- To keep up the fight for policy changes to protect kidney patients and living donors.
- To drive innovation in transplantation and get more loved ones off the kidney transplant waitlist.
Are you with me?
Please join me as I continue my fundraising efforts. I've been working at the NKFL for 27 years. We've made tremendous strides. There is still much to do.
Please consider supporting my efforts with a generous donation to the New Orleans Kidney Walk.
