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.
My cousin was diagnosed with kidney disease and had a kidney transplant last year. She did not have to wait on a waiting list because her brother was a match and agreed to give her one of his kidneys. Everyone is not so blessed. Please help me help those who have to live with kidney disease.
Join us in Taking Action
Last year, the American Kidney Fund provided assistance to 1 out of every 5 dialysis patients. This year, Virtual Walkers 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.
