I am not alone.

"When I was first diagnosed and started dialysis, I was struggling to keep my job. I'd never felt so alone. AKF connected me with a community of caregivers and patients like me."

I will fight for people like my mom.

"My mom fought kidney disease and for as long as I live, I will fight for people like her. "

I will live a good life.

"AKF's educational materials, recipes and other free resources are helping me overcome my health challenges and live an independent and positive life."

Our commitment to you and your community

We're fighting for kidney equity in kidney disease
