Thank you for visiting my Fundraising Page for the National Kidney Foundation (NKF)
My father's life was impacted by kidney disease and I started this page in his honor. The journey for someone diagnosed with kidney disease is long and difficult. NKF’s work helps make the journey a little easier those living with kidney disease, as well as those who care for and about them.
My father's story began when he was diagnosed with Rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis [RPGN]. His kidney function quickly declined and he required hemodialysis. After months of treatment he was able to stop hemodialysis. His kidneys again failed during the summer of 2017. He was faced with knowing he would be dependent on dialysis the rest of his life. Subsequently I learned to give him home hemodialysis treatments. I continued the treatments until his health deteriorated and he passed away.
Over the past two decades, the face of kidney disease has been rapidly evolving. Landmark developments in nephrology have created new approaches to treatment, and groundbreaking information regarding prevention has altered the world’s understanding of the disease. NKF is leading the way in fighting this disease, leveraging their knowledge and experience to focus on building awareness, increasing prevention, and improving treatment of kidney disease.
Your donation will honor my father's battle with kidney disease and spread hope for the future. It will also help raise vital awareness to people at risk for kidney disease, so they do not have to go through what my father has gone through.
Every donation is meaningful to me and my family. We would be grateful for your support to help fight kidney disease.
