My son was on dialysis for 2 years and had his kidney transplant a year ago. Northwest Kidney Kids was the first place out family realized we weren't alone. I won't ever forget the moment at camp when my son lifted up his shirt and compared belly scars with another kidney kid. Love this organization!
Great organization to volunteer for. My husband, our two kids and I have been volunteering yearly for the past 3 years for the family camp. My husband is a dialysis patient and our kids are extremely comfortable with all aspects of dialysis however this camp surrounds them with people who understand our struggle.
