My twin sister, Ashley, has been living with kidney disease (and a rare blood disease) for the last decade and has been nothing short of amazing. On January 21, 2022 Mass General Hospital called that a deceased donor was a perfect match for a transplant and on January 22, 2022 Ashley received her new kidney. It’s been a roller coaster ride to say the least. Let’s all come together in support of Ashley, her truly wonderful husband Sean and sweet little girl Amelia Hope - and for all the others and their families suffering with kidney illnesses.
Why I WalkI walk because too many families (like mine) 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.
Are you with me?
Please consider supporting my efforts with a generous donation.
