Help Us Select the 2013 Hero of Hope

Do you know a person living with kidney disease who is making a difference in his or her community? Each year, the American Kidney Fund asks its friends to submit nominations for the Hero of Hope award.

We are looking for dialysis or transplant patients who deserve recognition for giving back to their communities. Do you know someone who deserves recognition? Each honoree’s story is unique and inspiring. Previous honorees have been selected for such reasons as:

  • Providing support and encouragement to fellow kidney patients
  • Volunteering in the local community
  • Conducting outreach to increase public awareness of kidney disease

To nominate someone for the American Kidney Fund’s Hero of Hope Award, simply complete a nomination form on our website. The patient who is selected as the 2013 Hero of Hope will be honored at The Hope Affair on Tuesday evening, October 29, 2013, at Mellon Auditorium in Washington, D.C. The Hope Affair is a celebration of the people who inspire us in the fight against kidney disease.

The deadline for nominations is July 9, 2013. We look forward to learning about your Hero of Hope!
