Help us select the 2021 Hero of Hope

The American Kidney Fund’s Hero of Hope award, one of the highest honors given to a person living with kidney disease (either on dialysis or post-transplant) is presented to someone who truly gives back to their community. Each year AKF receives nominations from across the country that detail how their nominee is a testament to determination and hope in the face of kidney disease.

We invite you to recognize an inspirational dialysis or kidney transplant patient who is overcoming the challenges of living with kidney failure and spreading hope in their community.

Learn more and nominate your Hero of Hope!
