Why I WalkEaston was born with chronic kidney disease and has been on peritoneal dialysis since September 2022. We are preparing for a kidney transplant this fall in Cincinnati. Kidney disease has changed our lives and his Pediatric Dialysis Unit is in Charlotte, fitting for the Kidney Walk location we chose.
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.
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?
Walk is in Charlotte, NC on Sunday, October 1st.
