Wow, it’s almost a year since I started this blog. I got my paperwork today to enroll in the bigger kidney database between U of Michigan and U of Toledo so hopefully I will be able to donate in the next few months.

March is National Kidney Month! It’s a great time to learn about kidney disease, kidney donation or how to take care of your kidneys. Go to List of Resources on Kidney Donation 

A great way to recognize National Kidney Month is to register to be an organ donor:

You can also support kidney donors and patients by participating in a kidney walk. From the National Kidney Foundation:

The National Kidney Foundation’s Kidney Walk is a fun, inspiring community fundraiser that calls attention to the prevention of kidney disease and the need for organ donation. It’s also an opportunity for patients, family, friends and businesses to come together. ” Thanks to the money raised through the walks, NKF is able to offer free early detection screenings for kidney disease, support research, educate patients and the public, advocate for kidney patients and other groups affected by kidney disease, and much more.

In the Lansing area the Kidney Walk is Sunday June 12, 2011 Look for the kidney walks in your area. Come walk or donate to a walker! (Thanks to Kiersten for this info.)
