Mission Statement

Our desire is to share compassion with individuals who are
diagnosed with kidney disease by supporting efforts for early screening,
detection, online support group services, and awareness of treatment options
that include Living Donor Paired Kidney Exchange. 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.

 
National Kidney Center provides an online
support group 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 to kidney disease each year and provide
support to establish a live donor national registry.
