I have seen people I love on dialysis and the pain the families go through first and I know that prevention is KEY. I am walking for my God Mom who lost her battle and is watching over me. Love you ma. R.I.P Laverne Woodbury!
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.
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.
