For My Dad

Why I am  Taking Action

One in eight U.S. adults has kidney disease and 90% don't even know it. Many people are unaware that kidney disease can be prevented, which is why I am participating in the American Kidney Fund's Virtual Walk.  I will join the American Kidney Fund in an effort to make sure our family, friends and colleagues are all aware of this silent killer. We are working together in fight against kidney disease by creating awareness and helping to raise money for programs and services.

As you already know my Father passed away on June 25, 2013 from Kidney Disease, he was stage 2 when diagnosed and went to stage 4 within 60 days.  He progression was rapid and difficult but many of his caregivers stepped up to give him the best care possible.  In the end his body could not take the stress that was put on it but He gave it an amazing fight.  He was one of the strongest people I know and I am blessed to have shared my life with him.  He fought long and hard but coupled with his other issues his body just could no longer handle the stress.  I ask that you please help me by helping other patients in the same predicament.   

 

If you can help me with a donation or even by simply passing this on to others I would appreciate it.  In honor of my Father and others like him I Thank You!  

Join us in Taking Action

Last year, the American Kidney Fund provided assistance to almost one in four dialysis patients. This year, we will be walking to raise money and awareness for those living with kidney disease. You can join me in the fight against kidney disease by supporting my personal fundraising efforts. Your contribution, whether it is $20 or $2,000, will help fund the programs that provide financial assistance to people living with kidney disease.
