Malcolm X once said, “A man who stands for nothing will fall for anything.”
As we face trials in life, especially during difficult times such as the times we are currently facing, it is vital to identify with something greater than ourselves, even if it seems unattainable.
We invite you to take a stand with us in celebration of National Kidney Month!
In 2006, I heard the frightening words, “Your kidneys are failing!” With no family history or background knowledge, I forged through hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis. Although there were times that I wanted to throw in the towel, I pushed through by faith and with the help of my village. In 2013, I received a new kidney from my sister. As a result of my journey, I launched Kindness for Kidneys International, Inc., a non-profit organization committed to educating, encouraging, and empowering kidney warriors and their families. The dictionary defines a warrior as a brave or experienced soldier or fighter. I feel this definition depicts my story and fight.
Hello, my name is KIDNEY WARRIOR!
