For the past 22 years, RSN has hosted an annual prom at no charge to teens who have kidney disease. RSN founder Lori Hartwell was on dialysis from age 12-24 and doesn’t want her peers to miss this special event. One friend can make a difference!

Prom season comes early for teens and young adults who have been diagnosed with kidney disease, who are on dialysis or who have a kidney transplant. The first prom was held in 1999 by Lori Hartwell, RSN’s President and Founder, who missed her own prom due to being on dialysis from age 12-24 and missing many school activities. She didn’t want other teens to miss this coming of age event and have the opportunity to meet each other. The prom brings these young people together to share their experiences, strengths, and hopes. It lets them know they are not alone and that ‘one friend can make a difference’. This event is at no charge to attendees and their guests.
