The family of Freda Gilbert Robertson is walking!

The 2012 Greater Lansing Kidney Walk is Saturday June 9. My dear friend Jackie and her family are walking in memory of her mother Freda, who left us too soon after her brave battle with kidney disease. You can give to Jackie’s team here: Freda’s kids.

My friend Kiersten received the gift of life from her best friend Theresa in 2003. You can give to Kiersten’s walk team here: Hedke’s Haulers.

Both Jackie and Kiersten are wonderful examples of people who battle kidney disease with courage, humor and strength. They are both doing very well with their transplants. Jackie will celebrate two years with her kidney in July, and Kiersten passed the nine mile mark in January.

Look for kidney walks in your area. Walk or support a walker!
