There is a shortage of live donors because:
1) Lack of education and knowledge of the process of being a live donor.
2) Financial concerns during the recovery when they aren’t able to work
for approximately 6 weeks.
(*Medicare will only pay for end care Renal (chronic kidney) disease).
*According to the National Kidney Foundation.
|Our Goal is to financially (during the recovery time)
help people who have given the gift of life by donating a kidney.
We are raising money for the living expenses of patients who have received
a kidney transplant & for the live donors who give the gift of life.
Kidney Disease has jumped by 30% since 2004.
Over 300,000 Americans with end stage renal (chronic kidney) disease rely
on dialysis to keep them alive. 67,000 people die of kidney failure each year.
