Why I WalkI walk in memory of my mother, Barbara Hanselka. My mom lived with kidney disease for years before going on dialysis full time in 2010. She managed with dialysis but it was very difficult and time consuming for her. She spent a lot of time in the hospital the past few years and ultimately passed away on August, 17th 2016.
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?
