Tracy Y. Hubbard April 4, 1969 - July 18, 2021
We regret to inform you of the passing of one of our founding board members Ms. Tracy Y Hubbard.
When the late Angela L. Davis told her childhood friend that she wanted to start a non profit organization for dialysis/CKD patients, Tracy helped Angela bring her dream to fruition and For Kidney's Sake was born.
Not only was Tracy a founding member of our board, she was recording secretary, fundraising/events planner and a big support system in any way that she could, whenever she could.
We are devastated and saddened by her sudden passing, but at the same time we know that she is with The Lord and back with friend Angela. We are forever thankful for her presence and grateful for her support and love.
