Staff member Shayla Harris and her living donor, her sister

As a kidney transplant recipient and employee of AKF, I have seen firsthand the impact that AKF makes every day in the lives of kidney patients and their families. I am extremely thankful to work for an organization that supports kidney patients and advances programs from prevention through transplantation.

The best part of my job is hearing the gratitude our patients have for the work we do. Any time I hear from a patient, it brightens up my day. I love knowing that we make a difference in their lives, and they motivate me to work just as hard as they do in their fight every day.
