Why I Walk

I walk because too many families (like mine) are coping with this devastating chronic illness, and thousands more will face an unexpected kidney disease diagnosis in the year to come.  My husband John is on the transplant list and has gone to dialysis 3 times a week for the past 3-4 years.  Having a transplant can mean a new, healthier life for him - a better quality of life.  I want to make more people aware of how important it is to donate to the kidney foundation to support the work that they do to help people like John.

I walk to support the lifechanging 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 consider supporting my efforts with whatever you can afford to donate.
