Why I Walk
Kidney disease and the mission of the National Kidney Foundation is very personal to me. As an employee of Dallas Nephrology Associates, I see daily the impact that kidney disease has on our patients and their families. Team DNA works hard to assist the NKF to make a positive impact on those afflicted with chronic kidney disease through raised awareness and funding of lifesaving programs that educate and support patients, their families and those at risk.
Right 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.
