World Kidney day


  • +1

Blog by Bettina Reid | March 8th, 2012


After making mention of International Women's Day today , it was brought to my attention that it is also World Kidney Day.

World Kidney Day is a day to raise awareness of the importance of our kidneys to our overall health. It's also important to be aware of the severity of kidney disease and the importance of getting yourself on the organ donor list. I brought this up last month in a previous blog, because of how easy it is to sign up. Not everyone can become a living kidney donor as my brother-in-law did. But you can fill out the information to become one upon death. As horrible as it sounds it is such an important topic. By filling out the organ donor forms online you can help to save more than just patients in need of a kidney, but so many other vital organs. 

I guarantee this will not be the last time I discuss organ donation...it's too important not to bring up again. :)
