Chronic Kidney Disease - Life After Diagnosis

Empower Yourself with the Knowledge You Need to Manage Life with Chronic Kidney Disease


Chronic kidney disease, CKD, is the third most common long-term illness in the United States. More Americans are developing CKD because more of us are living longer and developing diabetes and high blood pressure. There’s no cure for CKD — yet. But, by creating a strong community and forming powerful alliances, we can improve treatment, education and resources.

People who have chronic kidney disease, CKD, can live full, meaningful and purposeful lives. I do. Believe me, if I can, you can, too. It’s not easy. It takes deciding to live, hard work, willingness to change, self-education and lots of support – especially during those times when all you want to do is give up and give in.

I’ve been in that well of despair more times than I care to remember. But I didn’t give up. Somehow, I discovered strength I didn’t know I had and the support I needed to keep on fighting. In the process, I found a new meaning and purpose for my life that keeps me on track and looking forward to each new day.

My purpose – my mission – is to help my fellow CKD patients live satisfying and productive lives, to educate myself and others and to improve the level of care. I’m proud to be a member of the CKD community. I salute my fellow warriors.

Thank you for being committed to helping one another and making a difference. By ordering the book, Chronic Kidney Disease – Life After Diagnosis, you will be taking a powerful step towards finding new ways of managing this disease and living a fulfilling life.
