This is a picture of my aunt and I, taken about 4 years ago…
She’s my ultimate hero. She had Hodgkins disease when she was younger. She was a stay at home mom her whole life until her husband passed. Then she started working in Child Care. Shortly after she was diagnosed with Breast Cancer and survived. Recently, she’s been hit with Kidney Disease and is on Dialysis 3 times a week to survive. And she wears oxygen tubes 24/7 to keep her breathing. My aunt is one of the 29 million Americans- 1 in 9- fighting this same battle.
So, my family and friends have joined the National Kidney Foundation, 2012 Kidney Disease Walk. To help my aunt, and everyone in similar/non similar situations fighting Kidney Disease.
