kidneywalkMark your calendar! If you’re in our neck of the woods on October 11th, come join us at Lexington’s first Kidney Walk at Coldstream Park at 2pm. We’ve been invited by The National Kidney Foundation Of Kentucky to kick off/lead the walk, and we’ll have a VIP tent with beverages and popsicles for the kids. Why? Because October 11th just so happens to be Ryan’s ONE YEAR Transplant Anniversary! 

We are truly honored to accept this invitation, and look forward to celebrating Ryan’s anniversary by bringing awareness to kidney disease. This is also a great opportunity for us to provide hope to those who are fighting against kidney disease and/or waiting on the transplant waiting list. Last year at this time, Ryan was a Type 1 Diabetic in Stage IV kidney failure, waiting for a kidney/pancreas transplant.

Today, he is living diabetes free, thanks to the organ donor who selflessly gave him the gift of life.

As we walk together on October 11th, surrounded by those whose lives have been affected by kidney disease, we will remember our donor family as they continue to be the inspiration behind our dedication to encouraging more registered organ donors.

If you would like to join our Match For Ryan Team and walk with us on October 11th, please contact me. We would love to have your company on such a special day.
