Hey Crazy Amazing Humans! As you know, one of our biggest goals is to always provide helpful and practical information for your life. With that in mind, here are some startling facts:
- Kidney disease is the 10th leading cause of death in the U.S.
- Kidney disease is known as a “silent killer” and it is very hard to detect until it is almost too late, unless you get checked regularly.
- Kidney disease can happen at any stage of life – from teens and young adults, to older adults, to even babies and young children.
March is National Kidney Month so what better time to talk about what our kidneys do for us, how to be proactive with our kidney health, and highlight the efforts of those who are making an impact in helping individuals and their families who are dealing with kidney-related health issues.
Join us as Elisa & Michael Schenkman of the GOFARR Kidney Fund at Children’s Hospital L.A. and Mary Beth Barry from the CORE Kidney Health Program at UCLA share their invaluable knowledge and stories of courage, perseverance and hope. Our lively conversation will give you a deeper understanding of what your kidneys do, what signs to look for and how to be your own advocate when it comes to your health.
The World Kidney Day Joint Steering Committee has declared 2023 to be the year of “Kidney Health for All – Preparing for the Unexpected, Supporting the Vulnerable!” We certainly agree!
