to work

Why to give

Thomas Jones has faced the challenges of kidney disease almost his entire life. When his kidneys failed as a young man, he started on dialysis. The hardest part? Not being able to work or be a more productive citizen in his community. As he plans his life, he always must consider the impact of this disease and make sure there is transportation to dialysis clinics.

But, thanks to the generousity of the American Kidney Fund supporters, he was able to get support and the help he needed to live a healthier life.

"AKF helps people with kidney disease and advocates for better treatment options and care for patients - AKF is a worthy cause." - Thomas Jones


You make a difference in the lives of so many

"My father passed away after a three year battle. Without the help of AKF, there's no way he would have survived as long as he did. You all provided my family with an opportunity to spend invaluable time with him and for that, we are forever grateful!"

- Samantha K. Florida
