GOOD Campaign

$5,091 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 89 people in 8 months
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.

Hello team!
I have spoken with the pediatric kidney doctors from Houston and Corpus Christi. As of last night they were still missing a number of patients who should have received dialysis on Monday, so there is a sense of urgency. They have enlisted the help from the Coast Guard.
These providers (nurses, technicians and doctors) are heroes working under extreme duress, but determined to help their patients.
We are all grateful for your support. Go "GOOD Campaign team!!
