Why I WalkI walk because my father suffered from this devastating, chronic illness, FSGS, and it changed his life drastically. Unfortunately, my father wasn't a candidate to receive a kidney transplant, but having to go through dialysis several times a week, for several hours at a time, for years was a blow to his spirit and his livelihood. Seeing one of the people I love most in this world suffer was heartbreaking.
So, I want to support what he went through and what all those who suffer from this disease go through. I walk to support the lifechanging work of the National Kidney Foundation:
- To ensure that families like ours will have a place to turn when they need answers and to spread the word on this disease.
- 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.
If you can spare even a small amount to help my daughter and I reach our goal of $1,000, please consider a donation, no matter how large or small. Are you with me?
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
Please consider supporting my efforts with a generous donation.
