Kidney Connection can Help Those Waiting for Kidney Transplant

Are you a dialysis patient or currently on the transplant waiting list? Are you someone that would save a life if you could?  Then you're on your way to making the kidney connection!   Kidney Connection is a FREE service that allows those in need of a kidney to share their story in the hope that someone willing to be a donor will step forward and be tested.  We make the “connection” – the introduction, and from there you will work with the transplant center to determine whether the connection is a match!  Take a look - you never know what will inspire you!  

Join the Kidney Club

Looking for a way to connect with other patients and family members?  Want a place to ask questions and share experiences?  Then join the kidney club, monthly support group meetings for patients, family members and friends.  The schedule of meetings is as follows:
