Thank you to Utah’s Kidney Kars Donations!

My name is Holly,  I am writing a little note to say thank you to all the people who donate their cars to the National Kidney Foundation of Utah’s Kidney Kars donation program.  The National Kidney Foundation of Utah recently helped me pay my dental bill, which I couldn’t afford to pay.  If you are wondering why going to the dentist is so important  to someone like me with kidney failure–consider the fact that I will be take off the transplant waiting list if I do not visit the dentist and am not current on my dental care.  You can not receive a transplant with any kind of infection, and not even a cavity.  Kidney patients often struggle with the cost of going to the dentist on top of all their other medical expeneses.  So to you, the Kidney Kars donors and the National Kidney Foundation of Utah–I say THANK YOU! for helping me pay to go to the dentist, and keeping me on the transplant waiting list. With any luck, I’ll get a call soon!  Sincerely,   Holly L. 

We would be truly lost

Dear Kidney Foundation, My family and I would like to thank the donors, board members, and friends who made helping us pay our rent & gas possible.  Last fall Daniel (the main provider for our family) was diagnosed with end stage renal failure.  While I was searching for a job, we still had no way of bridging the gap between our new medical expenses and paying for rent, with the new financial burden of getting Daniel to and from dialysis three days a week.  Without your help and generosity, we would have been truly lost.  We are very grateful there are people and charities out there willing to help lend a hand to those in need–people they have never met.  We just want to say, thank you for helping us, for helping our family.  From the bottom of our hearts, Daniel & Julie C.
