Thomas Kepka

There are so many worthy causes that deserve attention, but I've chosen to work with the National Kidney Foundation because of the stories I have personally witnessed. I have loved ones who battle diabetes and as a result have depleted kidney function. Others have had brushes with kidney issues because of medication overuse. And in 2020, I became a living donor for a beloved friend who had PKD...unfortunately PKD runs in the family.

And through sharing my donation story, I was surprised to hear how many other people I knew were directly affected by kidney disease. Friends and co-workers opened up to me about their experiences, and I'll forever be grateful to have been able to donate and to have heard other stories because of it. Like I said, there are many ways for you to contribute to making lives better. I thank you for considering this one.

Hi Thomas, the National Kidney Foundation is an amazing cause. I am donating because of your generosity in giving someone you care about life, through your own kidney donation. I also am donating to recognize my kidney donor, who passed away at a young age and gave me the gift of life without dialysis. I will be forever grateful to their family for helping me fight PKD! Thanks for fundraising for the National Kidney Foundation!
