I am sixty years old and quality of life is very important to me. My awareness of the Kidney Foundation has been brief since I was only diagnosed with kidney failure in August of 2007. I’ve had diabetes and high blood pressure my whole life, I’ve had a partial amputation of my left foot and a bout with bone cancer which left me with metal pins in my hip. But waking up in the hospital and being told that I had complete kidney failure was extremely challenging to me. The people I’ve been exposed to in dialysis treatment have been phenomenal; the doctors, the staff, the nurses are marvelous. They are my family now since my husband moved into a nursing home because of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. I will be meeting with a transplant surgeon the end of April to prepare myself for kidney transplant surgery. What depth of gratitude can I express to the National Kidney Foundation of Utah for the financial help to help pay for my needs. Thank you for the continuous work of miracles you perform daily. Most Sincerely, B. Conley
Dear Utah Kidney Foundation,
I would like to thank you for helping me pay my Cobra Blue Cross Blue Shield. Kidney disease has forced me to give up my job, and I was worried about losing my health care coverage while I was sick. I could not have paid for it to cover my kidney failure without your help. Thank you. Stephen U.

Thank you all so much for helping us in a time of need. I am a full time student in college. Making ends meet is tough enough. When my wife and I found out about my kidney disease, it was so unexpected and disheartening. Being only 24 years old, I was shocked to find out I would be going on dialysis and in need of a transplant. Medical bills pile up and can be overwhelming. Every little bit counts. Thank you for helping to take away some of the financial stress associated with needing a transplant. Please thank your donors. S. L. Lewis
Dear Kidney Foundation,
Thank you so much for paying our horrendous gas and electric bill. I was feeling so helpless and hopelss after paying all my medical bills this month– not a penny was left over. I thought our heat might get turned off. I was worried sick because of how cold it’s been this week. Your kindness is so much appreciated, it took a load off my mind. When I get to a point where I can donate to our orangaization, I will. I would like to help others, as you have helped us in our time of need. Thanks again.— Signed, M. Macke (Utah Dialysis Patient)

I just wanted to thank you for your quick processing of our car donation! I am so happy to know the donation is going to a legitimate charity, right here in Utah. Thanks for making the process so easy.
Dear Kidney Foundation of Utah and Idaho,
I have been a dialysis patient for a little over a year. Since I’ve been on dialysis, we have had to struggle from one financial problem to another (which can I afford this month, my medications or mortgage payment?). It’s good to know there is an organization out there to help dialysis patients, in need. Please tell your donors, how much their contributions mean to people like me.
I so appreciate getting a grant to help me pay for my medication. I don’t know how we could have afforded all the medications I have to take without your help.
I donated my first car to the Kidney Foundation for a tax deduction back in 1991. I just donated another car, and the process is faster and easier than ever! Thank you Kidney Foundation for taking my car! Say hi to Bronco– Go Cougars!
