I would love to have a great story to share but they want potential recipients to pay an $1,800 fee to join the site.
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 was so fortunate to meet the flood sisters about a year ago and I'm overwhelmed by their commitment to helping those in need of kidney transplants. I am behind them every step of the way and commend them for their efforts!
I joined the board of this foundation because I have known the Flood sisters and admire their dedication to this cause. They are always willing to listen and find a solution out-of-the-box.
I support this group for th work they do in thinking outside the box in trying to improve the health of the public.
I met the Flood Sisters and I am amazed at how courageous they are to take this on. What a commitment this is - and they do this all while having full-time jobs and their own families to take care of!
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!
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!
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.
My name is Betty – and I had my successful kidney transplant September 17, 2009 at the University of Minnesota.
My daughter, Jordana, wrote a most heartfelt letter to Jennifer at the Flood Sisters Foundation– that eventually my “angel” donor read and responded.
My donor now is part of our “extended” family and we communicate and see each other as often as possible.
May Jennifer and The Flood Sisters Foundation of America continue their life saving work forever and they deserve all the assistance humanly possible.

I came to know the Flood sisters and their organization through my battle with breast cancer early last year. While beating it, I felt that since God was giving me a second chance at life, I wanted to give back. Therefore, I looked up volunteer opportunities on CL, and the rest is history.
Working with the sisters, seeing the people they help and the work they do, is inspiring. They are passionate about their work and with the amount of supporters growing at each event, it is apparent that they are very successful at it.
I was fortunate to meet a woman who will be the recipient of a new kidney at the last event, as well Father Flood - the family patriarch and the whole reason behind why they founded the organization.
Now that I am cancer free, I plan to always give of myself to the Flood Sisters Kidney Foundation of America whenever they need my help. As people, they have enriched my life as well as the work they do. I am definitely a better person for it. This is an organization that is very deserving of any and all accolades and success that come their way.
there are very few charitable organizations that deliver the passion that I see in the Flood Sisters. They are authentic, tireless and committed to change. There love for saving lives and their care - amazing I support their work, the organization they created and salute their efforts
My mother was in desperate need of a kidney transplant and we had no matches in the family. By chance, we heard the Flood Sisters story on CNN and I looked up their website. For a ridiculously low membership fee, I signed my mother up in hopes of finding an altruistic donor to save her life. Within three months, they found us our angel. Five
months and many, many tests later, the successful transplant went down and my mom has a new lease on life. Two years since the transplant, the donor has since become practically a very dear friend and practically a member of the family. Miracles do happen, but only due to heroes like the Flood Sisters Kidney Organization bringing
people together. Thank you!
The Flood Sisters Kidney Foundation of America focuses on life-saving results. When I think about organ donation, I think what if my Mom, Dad or loved one were in need of a kidney. What would I do if I were not a match? Would you -- could you -- sit around helplessly if the waiting list for a donor were endless? I could not.
When the Flood sisters were faced with this heartwrenching dilemma, they could not either. They were proactive. Their father is alive and well today because of their actions. Afterwards, they decided to help others do the same. To date, they have already successfully matched a handful of individuals.
It is an organization that asks What can we do for YOU? When I think about donating to a non-profit, I like to know the people and know they are really helping others. I want to meet the individuals they help. In this case, I have personally met those who are forever grateful they met the Flood sisters.
I first met them after giving a speech at Pace University in New York City. Dr. Barry Miller, director of alumni relations introduced me to them. I thought he was introducing me to a rock band named The Flood Sisters.
Instead of music, I was moved by their enthusiasm, authenticity and dedication to help others who were in the same predicament as they were when they learned their father needed a kidney.
They shared details of their story with me, and I was more than happy to help them raise awareness about organ donation. Since that time, I've gotten to know the Flood sisters and can say they are truly dedicated to this cause.
This is a lifelong mission for the Flood sisters. They work tirelessly at it. It's wonderful to see a family pull together for a good cause. They are an inspiration. They are passionate and outstanding in their commitment to help others.
I deeply appreciate all of my network colleagues, friends and those in media who have given of their time and resources to help with this worthy cause.
One of my favorite films is Frank Capra's "It's A Wonderful Life". I love when Clarence writes, "Everytime a bell rings, an angel gets its wings."
Well, every time a good health story is told, a life is helped or saved.
For me, that makes it a wonderful life.
