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.
