GOOD Campaign

The GOOD (Global On-going Outreach for Dialysis Patients) Campaign
Please help children and adults on dialysis whose treatments are disrupted by natural disasters. Dialysis patients (and their families), in general, are over-extended with medical expenses not covered by health insurance.  For example, hemodialysis patients must get treatment at dialysis centers 3 times per week, 4 hours at a time.  Just like homes, dialysis centers have been affected by current flooding conditions. This has created a dire need for transportation to alternative healthcare centers.
It is our hope that we raise awareness and funds to assist these special patients in need.  

I am a health provider and researcher whose mission in life is to help children and young adults from around the world with kidney disease. I have an extensive number of publications in the field, have worked in academic centers over the last 25 years, and I have family members with kidney failure. Needless to say, my experiences have given me a unique perspective to understand what these special patients and families are going through now. These funds will help with disaster recovery expenses such as:

Transportation to alternative dialysis centers

Emergency medications

Emergency medical supplies

Emergency shelter

We will send the money directly to patients and their families. Thank you for helping us.
