National Kidney Foundation

I have a crazy busy next few days, so I probably won’t be able to put together a good post.  So, I will share other info instead.

The NKF is an organization geared towards all kidney information.  I love their website, it is full of tons of helpful information and tips.  Consider becoming an advocate, especially if you have CKD, or CRF, or love someone who does.  I wanted to do the Kidney Walk in Jacksonville, but unfortunately it is my weekend to work.  I will have to keep an eye out for future walks close to my home.  I have already written to Congress once, for advocacy.  It is super simple just use their link to sign up and they will send you info.

You could also consider donating a monetary amount, or even being a living donor.  Laws are starting to change making it easier for living donors to be better compensated for the gift of love that they provide.  I can not be a donor, because I only have one strong kidney myself.  I am on the Bone Marrow Transplant registry, but now I don’t even know if they would allow that considering my kidney.  That makes me kind of sad.  I was actually contacted twice, over the 20 years that I have been on the registry, as a close match.  However, both times a better match was found.  It makes me proud to think I could have helped save someone’s life in that way.  I have also donated blood over the years.  Now with a fear of Anemia, again not sure if my kidney doctor would allow.

You can visit the National Kidney Foundation page, by clicking the highlighted link.  I will share other kidney resources, that I frequent in future posts.  You can use the contact form below to email me with any questions, or if you need a Health Coach.
