During a recent kidney screening (dipping urine) a community member came and had her urine tested she explained that she felt fine but what the heck it was free. Since our test is not a diagnosis and we are not physicians I explained to her the results of her test, which were seriously abnormal, and gently advised her to take the results to her physician when she had a chance within the next week or so trying to stress the urgency without causing her stress or fear. She did this within the week and our office received a letter from her thanking us it turned out that this woman who had no symptoms of kidney disease had cancer of the kidney and thanks to the test that we performed she was encouraged to see her family physician and was diagnosed early enough to save her life. She is currenlty receiving treatment. I have had so many wonderfully rewarding encounters while working with KHAKY. It is a wonderful organization and is the last organization that really concentrates on workign directly with the patient and their families. I want the word to get out about KHAKY we are a small organization but we serve a large area in Kentucky.

The Great!

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

It has allowed me to give back to the community and to help individuals suffering from a silent attacker and their families. To educate and to interact with patients, and the community

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Hard working, energentic. Some are kindey transplant patients themselves, some are kidney donors, some family members of kidney disease patients.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Reach so many more individuals, create a larger name for itself, do more to help the current patients, make its name known

Ways to make it better...

I can think of nothing that would make my experience better.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

The lack of recognition throughout the community. Due to the size and budget of our organization advertising is always a problem

One thing I'd also say is that...

KHAKY is one of the hardest workign organization. We dont have a large corporation behind us, and we work with a body fliud most people dont like to talk about, but our work is very important and very worthwhile.
