Honor a kidney hero on the National Kidney Foundation Heroes Among Us Tribute Wall
If your life has been touched by kidney disease, then you know what it's like to see courage in motion, and today we celebrate that courage! Welcome to Heroes Among Us, a special place where you can pay tribute to a loved one. Pin a virtual kidney to represent their bold resolve. Post a note and upload a picture to honor their brave determination and to inspire others. We are actively working to improve the quality of life for the 26 million Americans living with kidney disease. This silent killer takes more lives annually than breast cancer or prostate cancer. Thank you for being a part of the nationwide community of people committed to the awareness, prevention, and treatment of kidney disease. By paying tribute to the hero in your life today you will encourage and inspire others.
20 Year Transplantversary!!!! by Theresa Miceli. on 2015-11-01 15:40:26
My tribute is for my brother George Wankmueller, who 20 years ago, November 8, 1995 donated his kidney to save my sister, Mary Jane Scanlon's life. She has been able to live her life and celebrate every day since that miraculous day. We are celebrating with a destination celebration vacation! I am hoping this tribute inspires others to donate organs, give life, and let others know that there is life after a transplant. THANK YOU GEORGE!!!!!!!
