I am so fortunate to be celebrating two major milestones within a month—the five-year anniversary of my kidney transplant and my 50th birthday! 5/50! To celebrate, I'm launching a 50-day fundraiser for the National Kidney Foundation, the largest, most comprehensive and longstanding organization dedicated to the awareness, prevention and treatment of kidney disease, and I’m so proud to be a part of it.
Money raised will support NKF’s mission to promote #KidneyHealth by:
- Working to eliminate preventable chronic kidney disease;
- Eliminating the waiting list for kidney transplants (which right now is about 4.5 years); and
- Improving the quality of life of kidney disease patients and their families.
Because of my journey, I know first-hand how important it is to promote kidney health. Right now 12 people pass away every day waiting for a kidney transplant and one in three people is at risk and does not know it. We simply cannot let that continue! Please join me in supporting this important causing by donating today and sharing my campaign with your friends, families and colleagues!
