i have had a kidney disease diagnosed in early 1989. I did Home Hemo-Dialysis for two years - mid 2017 until mid 2020. On July 14th I received the best gift ever from my niece Deanna ..... a new kidney. It started working right away with no problems. I pray that more kidney patients receive this gift of renewed life from family or friends.
Why I WalkRight now, 37 million American adults are living with kidney disease, and I’m not okay with that. I walk because 1 in 3 people are at risk for kidney disease. I walk because more than 1 in 7 people have it but aren’t aware.
I walk to raised funds that support the National Kidney Foundation, who was the first to identify kidney disease as a distinct, treatable illness. They developed the staged system of kidney disease diagnosis and treatment – a worldwide standard today – and release and update treatment guidelines to improve patient care.
