With every face and name on our list comes a story…

Each story is unique. But what they have in common is the need for a new kidney. Without a working kidney, a person must spend hours each week “living”on a dialysis machine. Many die each year while waiting. The medical community agrees that the best treatment is a kidney transplant. Over 90,000 people are on the national waiting list for a kidney. Here is just a sampling of the stories of our friends and neighbors who live in the Rochester, NY region and who are in desperate need of a “kidney connection.”
