Welcome to Leela's Team Kidney Fundraising Page!
In sticking with tradition since Leela's birth, we are asking for donations in lieu of gifts this year for an organization that became an important part of our lives as we welcomed our son Shay. We can think of no better way to exemplify her loving, altruistic nature by her fundraising to help an organization that will be an integral part of her baby brother's life moving forward.
The National Kidney Foundation works tirelessly to help the 73 million Americans at risk for kidney disease, the 30 million Americans 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.
Any amount you guys can contribute will mean the world to us, and those in need.
