Right now, more than 30 million Americans are affected by kidney disease. Most often caused by diabetes or high blood pressure, kidney disease usually has no early symptoms, which is why it’s so important to be tested. There's currently no cure for kidney disease, but it can be treated. Understanding its causes and taking steps to live healthier can help prevent kidney disease.
More than 114,000 men, women and children await lifesaving organ transplants. 100,000 people are waiting and in need of a kidney. Living organ donation helps save lives.
When a loved one has kidney disease, you might not know how to help. You might also feel stressed about fulfilling your other day-to-day obligations while caring for your loved one. You’re not alone.
Join us in honoring the lives of people affected by kidney disease and their caregivers. Your meaningful gift in honor or in memory of a loved one will help support education, research and assistance to help kidney patients live better, healthier lives.
