Kidney March

The Global Renal Exercise Group (GREX) is looking for people with kidney disease and/or their caregivers to take 3 online surveys. Your answers will guide future research into exercise for people with kidney disease. Surveys will be sent 4-6 weeks apart and will take 10-15 minutes to fill in. There are no right or wrong answers. The Kidney Foundation is proud to support this research.

If you are interested contact Dr. Stephanie Thompson at exercckd@ualberta.ca by April 26, 2019

Kidney March

April is Organ Donation Month, and the Calgary Police were out there raising awareness about the need to increase #OrganDonation rates in Canada.
Drivers who had an organ donor symbol on their licences were given a second chance, because as a registered organ donor they are willing to give someone else a second chance to live.
Register and most importantly talk to your family about your wishes. www.kidney.ca/organ-donor-registries

Calgary Police Service
April is Organ Donation Month

Are you a registered organ donor?

The stats are startling:

• About 4,500 men, women and children are currently waiting for an organ transplant in Canada;

• Every year, 260 of those people will die before receiving a transplant. That means five deaths per week could have been saved with viable donors;

• One organ donor can save up to eight lives and a tissue donor can benefit up to 75 individuals.

We’re proud to support the Canadian Transplant Association (www.canadiantransplant.com/) by helping to raise awareness of the importance of organ donation by participating in the Second Chances campaign.
