Learning from our Clients: Spotlight on Northwest Kidney Centers

by

The thing I value most about working for The Collins Group is that we are constantly learning – from donors and volunteers, from each other, and, most often, from our clients.  The nature of our work allows us to become engaged with such a wide array of nonprofit organizations, and I am constantly surprised by the information I pick up through each and every project I work on.

Last week was no exception.  At a focus group for the Northwest Kidney Centers, I was able to interact with a group of individuals who are living with kidney disease, some of whom have undergone multiple transplants, or been on dialysis for decades.  Working with Northwest Kidney Centers has been my first introduction to kidney disease and the ways it affects the lives of patients and their families.  I was astounded to hear that one in seven adult Americans has Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) – most commonly caused by diabetes and high blood pressure.

The good news – it is highly preventable with very simple lifestyle changes, and increased communication with your doctors.  In an article published earlier this year in the Woodinville Weekly, CKD patient Glenda Roberts shares her emotional story of being diagnosed with CKD at age 21, losing her father and brother to the disease, and finding ways to manage her health, allowing her to stave off dialysis for decades.  The end of the article includes a list of ways to prevent the disease.  I strongly encourage you to read this article and share it with your friends and family.  For more information on CKD, or to support the amazing work that Northwest Kidney Centers is doing, visit their website (www.nwkidney.org).
