WHY I WALK I 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 because I see the impact kidney disease has on patients and their families. I walk because I couldn't do my job without the help of amazing organizations like the kidney foundation! I walk to show a glimmer of my appreciation of the support received from the kidney foundation. 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!!!! Policy changes like immunosuppressant drugs being covered post transplant now! Policy changes like donors not being discriminated against post donation, being able to get life insurance and keep the same coverage. - To drive innovation in transplantation and get more loved ones off the kidney transplant waitlist. Are you with me?! Who's walking with me! PLEASE CONSIDER SUPPORTING MY EFFORTS WITH A GENEROUS DONATION.
