WHY I WALK I walk because I was on Kidney dialysis for seven years. I was diagnosed with Lupus which affected my kidney function. In November of 2021 I was diagnosed with possible renal carcinoma and had to have my right kidney removed in February 2022. I was blessed and fortunate to receive a kidney transplant in March of this year. Which I feel has given me a second chance to live a better life. And I know firsthand the struggles that myself and my family had to endure. This foundation has been there for me when I needed assistance with medications that were too expensive, and financial support. I also 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. 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.
