We have collaborated with The Flood Sisters on many occasions. Not only are they sacrificing their lives for their father, but also fighting on behlaf of many who have no voice. We love their organization and are completely inspired by their ambition and the grace that accompanies them. Not to mention we are our own Sister duo - so we connect on a deeper level! We are grateful to the Flood for being a shining example and look forward to future endeavors and how we can support them again!

I am very grateful to the Flood Sisters Kidney Foundation. I have polycystic kidney disease, an inherited family disease. There is no known cure. Many people in my family have this disease. We need to have other options besides dialysis or cadavers. That is why the Flood Sisters Kidney Foundation is so important. They have given me and so many others hope of receiving a living kidney donation. Right now I have a donor who is testing for me and I cannot thank my donor and the Flood Sisters enough.

I was delighted to meet the Flood Sisters early last fall at a local party. I remember being so impressed hearing their story and about the work they do that I "filed" it in the back of my mind as a potential cover story for the magazine I publish, Inside Chappaqua, and insidechappaqua.com Once I decided to follow through, working with them on the execution of the story was an easy and delightful experience. It was my honor to have them gracing my February cover this year, just in time for Valentine's Day. They are clearly very committed to matching donors and recipients and to the long term growth of thier wonderful organization.

I contacted the Flood Sisters in hopes of becoming a kidney donor. Jennifer responded right away with information on how to become a donor and a person I could be a possible match. I started the paperwork to become a donor, but sadly was turned away due to health reasons. I think what these women are doing is a great thing!

Change nothing.

My name is Mary and I am a two-time kidney transplant recipient, diagnosed with chronic kidney failure/renal agenesis when I was 3-years-old. I received my first kidney transplant when I was 6-years-old and my second transplant when I was 12-years-old, which means that my second transplant has lasted almost 17 years. I learned about "Flood Sisters Kidney Foundation of America" from local media and felt honored to meet these individuals who took their personal experiences to a professional and beyond level of helping other kidney transplant candidates. There are over 80,000 individuals waiting for a kidney transplant and altruistic living donation is the way to go thanks to the Flood Sisters Kidney Foundation of America!

Seeing the awesome and awe-inspiring work that they do!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Expand it to a greater level to assist over 80,000 individuals waiting for a life-saving kidney transplant!

I first learned of The Flood Sisters Kidney Foundation when I was searching to find a kidney match for my son Adam. I sent Jennifer Flood an email in hopes that she would be able to help me find that perfect kidney. I had attempted to contact many other donor match websites but I never received a response, so I was very surprised when Jennifer Flood responded immediately. I knew the moment I talked to Jennifer that she would be the one to help me in my quest to finding that perfect match for Adam. The Flood Sisters were able to connect me world renowned Dr. Robert Montgomery at John Hopkins in Baltimore Maryland. Jennifer Flood made it her mission to help us get from Texas to Maryland by helping us with various fundraisers and by helping me find my hope. My heart holds a special place for The Flood Sisters. Thank you, Jennifer, Heather and Cynthia.
