WHY I WALK I walk because my mom fought chronic kidney disease for 10 years. She endured dialysis for almost five years while waiting for a transplant. She survived 5 years post transplant with many ups and downs. On January 7th 2024 my mom lost a long battle with chronic kidney disease. Although she is no longer present here in the flesh, this is a way for me to keep her spirit alive. 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.
