Com-pas-sion (noun) – a feeling of deep sympathy and sorrow for another who is stricken by misfortune, accompanied by a strong desire to alleviate the suffering.
Our desire is to share compassion with individuals who are diagnosed with kidney disorders by supporting efforts for early screening, detection and awareness of treatment options that include paired donation. The National Kidney Center will work to educate each generation about the risk factors that can lead to kidney disease and the treatment options available to live a full life.
The National Kidney Center will also provide an online community where individuals with kidney disease can connect and share information with family members, friends and care providers. Through our educational efforts and the collective power of compassionate individuals, we will work to reduce the number of individuals who die from kidney disease each year and provide support to establish a live donor national registry.
