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.

Many of you know that my mother, Susie Jackson, had to go to dialysis for the last 10 years of her life.  Because of her diabetes and other issues she was not a candidate for transplant.  My sister, Deitra, also suffered the last years of her life with kidney disease.  I support research into prevention and cures.  I hope you will help.

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.
