April is National Donate Life Month

Every April we celebrate Donate Life Month to shine a spotlight on those saving lives through the gift of donation. “Donate Life America was inspired by bicycles and the phrase “Life is a beautiful ride.” Like the donation and transplantation journey, a bicycle serves as a symbol of progress, renewal and the moving circle of life. We each carry the potential to help make LIFE a beautiful ride for ourselves, and then for others, by registering as a donor, considering living donation, being a caregiver and championing the cause.” said Donate Life America.

Join us in the Fight Against Kidney Disease During National Kidney Month

Your kidney can fail due to build up of waste in the body, damage to the kidneys, anemia as well as build up of fluid in the body. Symptoms can include anything from nausea and vomiting, blood in the urine, fatigue to swelling in the face, feet or hands. To determine if the symptoms you have are because of kidney failure, have your doctor perform these specific tests: 

  1. Urinalysis – check for protein, blood and white blood cells in the urine.

  2. Blood tests – test creatinine and BUN, waste products that healthy kidneys remove from the bloodstream.

Make a contribution today and help us raise awareness about the importance of maintaining healthy kidneys!
