If you or anyone you know needs a kidney donor for a transplant, you
are invited to join us for our kidney drive campaign. And, If you or
anyone you know is pondering the thought of saving a life as a Kidney organ donor,
we will answer your questions.
People on the kidney waiting list has nearly tripled over the past
few decades, but organ donors are slowly signing on. Recipients
may have to wait two to six years — and sometimes as long
as 10 - before being matched with a donor or end up
disqualified due to the age limit.
Purpose of this campaign: Educational training, Register organ
donors and Identify those needing a kidney in Hampton Roads:
● A panel of professionals will answer questions normally
overlooked which cause communication to break down and
miss understanding between health care providers and the patients.
● Virginia is ranked number 9 on the list of Virginian that dies
from Chronic Kidney Disease and Hampton Roads is
ranked 10th out of the 133 counties.
● Bring potential Kidney Donors & CKD patients desiring a
transplant together and lower these numbers.
● Raise awareness to Prevent Chronic Kidney Disease to help
lower these number by avoiding kidney failure.
