Welcome to For Kidney’s Sake, Inc.

A Social Service Providing Organization For Chronic Kidney Disease/Dialysis Patients

With obesity, diabetes and many other kidney failure risk factors on the rise, subsequently incidences of Chronic Kidney Disease leading to dialysis is on the rise. As with any illness there are often physical and psychological trauma that patients suffer, and with CKD many suffer from physical cramps, tiredness, isolation and depression.

At For Kidney’s Sake we have taken the initiative to develop programs that combat the issues of isolation, lack of socialization and depression for CKD/dialysis patients. From events to activities and trips, all of our programming is focused towards increased socialization which allow patients to live a longer, better quality lifestyle.

"For Kidneys Sake is all about improving the quality of life of dialysis warriors and their families. I have attended more FKS events than I can remember, and Angela and her team never fail to deliver on their promise - "Making Life Better One Day at a Time for Dialysis Patients." FKS events are always entertaining, educational and - most importantly - inspirational. The events are real-time proof that people on dialysis can have great lives AND help others do the same."

"Until I came to your Lunch, Learn & Live Patient Education Event.... Better understanding your kidney journey, I had never heard anything about home dialysis as a form of treatment. The amount of Education I receive that day was amazing and it changed my life! I am now researching home hemorrhoids and hope to get started very soon!"

But Why The Initiative You May Ask?

Let’s Consider Some Stats…

Much of what is needed by the CKD/dialysis community is a combination of community awareness, education, support groups, and affordable social activities/trips.

At For Kidney’s Sake we improve the lives of dialysis patients one day at a time!

Chronic Kidney Disease Is The 9th Leading Cause Of Death In The USA

More than 31 million people suffer from CKD in the USA (that’s almost 10% of the total population)

African Americans Are At Higher Risk

The Chronic Kidney Disease risk for African Americans is 3.8 percent higher compared to whites and Asians' risk , which are 1.3 percent higher.

Life Endangering Side Effects

Diabetes and hypertension are the number one and two factors leading the Kidney Disease, respectively

Diabetes

Diabetes causes 38.5% of all kidney failures

Depression

Out of the total population that suffers from chronic kidney disease, 69% of patients suffer from severe depression.

Strain On Family

It is evident from the aforementioned facts that CKD is clearly a lifestyle changer, but it also has several adverse effects on both the individual and their family.
