WHY I WALK Some of you may know that I serve as the Kidney Donor Advocate at my hospital's Transplant Institute, in addition to my work as a Chaplain and Ministry Education Specialist. I get to metaphorically walk alongside the brave and selfless as they come to give a part of themselves to a loved one or, in some cases, a complete stranger. This is my chance to now walk literally with and for them—as well as those for whom they give of themselves: children and adults coping with the devastating chronic illness that is kidney disease. I also 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.
