Ruth Stopped Dialysis on 2/4/2013

March 14, 2013

Dear Ms. Vetterli,

Recently, the National Kidney Foundation granted a request of Ruth F. to pay property taxes for her mother’s home, where Ruth had lived for the last several years.  Ruth requested this grant as she planned to stop dialysis and was concerned about her mother’s financial affairs after she passed away.  Ruth’s request was granted on 2/6/2013.  She stopped dialysis on 2/4/2014 and died on 2/13/2013.  Ruth did not have a chance to write a letter, but was so appreciative that her request was granted. Thanks to the NKF, she had comfort knowing that she was providing some security for her mother.

Thank you for everything you do for Kidney Patients.
