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.

By paying tribute to the hero in your life today you will encourage and inspire others.
My Hero! by Francene Williams. on 2014-11-16 20:52:55
When my husband found out he had kidney disease he took it in stride just like he has every other event in our lives. He has great faith in God our Father and Jesus Christ so this was just one more thing to give to them to manage. He has been blessed by a really good group of nephrologists and they are always helpful and available. His health is very much compromised by other conditions: COPD, Type 1 Diabetes, Heart Disease and a few other things. But he is my Timex Watch - takes a licking and keeps on ticking!! We have been together for 53 years and look forward to many more. Now that he is in Stage 4 and has a fistula put in place, we are doing everything we can to stay as healthy as possible. No dialysis yet but God is still in control and we trust Him. He is truly my hero in every way.
