GOD has truly blessed me in a mighty way. I've had my kidney transplant for 19 years. My brother gave me my kidney. My kidney failed due to Lupus in 1996 I went on dialysis for 1 year then my kidney started back working. Then about 2 years later it was failing again so I asked my brother for a kidney and he said yes. What a blessing for both of us because they was doing transplants in Columbia at the time and to make a long story short. I'm still here and still thankful that HE keep me here for a reason. My purpose in life is too push organ donation and Give The Gift Of Life. So to start my journey my first stop will be the Kidney Foundation.

I’ve joined Team Kidney to raise funds to support the National Kidney Foundation (NKF) and the work they do to help people at risk for kidney disease, those living with chronic kidney disease, and those who care for and about them.

Did you know that 1 in 3 American adults are at risk for kidney disease? Major risk factors include diabetes, high blood pressure, a family history of kidney failure and being age 60 or older. Kidney disease often has no symptoms, and it can go undetected until very advanced. But a simple test can tell you if you have kidney disease.

The funds we raise enable NKF to provide early detection screenings and vital patient and community services to our local community. Your gift will make a difference in the lives of the nearly 30 million Americans who are currently living with kidney disease and the 73 million more at risk. It’s great to have you on the team.

Thank you!
