Dear Family and Friends,
On October 8th, 2020, Nick generously donated a kidney to me, giving me a new lease on life. The wait time for a donor deceased kidney could have averaged up to ten years, as the need far exceeds the organs available.
We fully believe in this extremely vital organization – Renal Support Network. In lieu of gifts we ask that you make a donation to help support RSN’s mission. RSN empowers people who have chronic kidney disease to become knowledgeable about their illness, proactive in their care, hopeful about their future, and make friendships that last a lifetime. Seeing fellow peers connect and do well despite the diagnosis is often overlooked as a key element of care.
We also encourage you to learn about becoming a living kidney donor, like Nick. Before my transplant I had to rely on dialysis to live. Click to learn more about Organ Donor Registries and living kidney donation. And, of course, Nick is always willing to share his personal experience as a living donor and how the process was so much easier than he had originally imagined.
Nick and Leslie
