The American Kidney Fund (AKF) is working on all fronts to make more kidney transplants possible. We provide financial assistance to dialysis and transplant patients; we work to raise awareness of organ donation; and we fight to protect the rights of living kidney donors. We ask you to help us EMPOWER, FIGHT FOR and HONOR kidney transplant patients and donors. We invite you to support the fight, share your voice, and learn about kidney transplants.
The numbers are alarming. Each month more than 10,000 people are diagnosed with kidney failure. We must never stop helping kidney patients who turn to us for help with their treatment-related expenses, including transplant. Make a contribution to help the American Kidney Fund educate more people about kidney transplant.
Nearly 100,000 people are still on the waiting list for a kidney transplant. We need more people to step forward to become living kidney donors. But unfortunately living donors currently face discrimination. AKF supports critically needed legislation in Congress that would extend insurance and Family and Medical Leave Act protections to living donors. Help us push the Living Donor Protection Act through Congress in 2018. Use your voice now so more lives can be saved tomorrow.Support the Living Donor Protection Act
For most people facing kidney failure, a kidney transplant is considered the best treatment option. Whether the donated kidney is from a living donor or a deceased donor, a kidney transplant can increase a kidney patient's chance of living a longer, healthier life.
