“They came to my rescue at a needed time. I didn’t know which way I was going to go with my medications. They really brought tears to my eyes when I got the letter saying I was approved.  I’m so thankful for the Kidney Foundation!”

Ella, KFNWO Patient

Kidney disease is a life-long family adjustment to embrace: by education and understanding all aspects.  By remaining optimistic with the support of family, friends, and community.  By collaborating with the healthcare team, by taking one day at a time and living life with joy and purpose.

Glenna, KFNWO Patient
