I cant thank this organization enough for their help while my husband was battling kidney disease. My husband , Jerry, was on dialysis for 2 1/2 years and couldnt work so his health insurance was Medicare only with a supplemental but it was expensive for us. I work 2 jobs so it was difficult to pay. His center told us about the AKF and all our worries were washed away. His premiums were religiously paid every month for the whole time he was on dialysis and I cant thank them enough. When he passed, I asked friends and family to please please make donations to the AKF so they can keep doing the great work they do for so many people.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

while my husband was on dialysis, the AKF paid his insurance premiums religiously every month.

Ways to make it better...

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

make more people aware of it inside the dialysis centers. My husband tried a second center and they never told us about this organization. He wound up going back to his original center.

How did you find this group?

from my husbands dialysis center's social worker at the time, Renal Center of Passaic, Clifton, NJ

What, if any, change in your life has this group encouraged?

I had my husband longer and the financial worries of his illness were taken away by their help. He worried so much for our financial future because of his illness. He was a volunteer firefighter so he wasnt used to worrying about himself and this organization made it possible for him to enjoy his life.

I was on dialysis and had to quit working and lost my insurance. The AKF stepped in and helped me by paying the extra that my wife's insurance was charging us to have me on her policy. You have enough to deal with when you are on dialysis waiting for a transplant that you do not need the added stress that money adds to your life. I appreciate the help and support that the AKF provided me.

Many of my dialysis friends have been helped by the AKF.

It would be helpful to have the AKF have a transplant wing. It feels like that once you have a transplant you are no longer considered a kidney patient
