KIDNEY STORIES: KRUISIN’ FOR KIDNEYS

Raising awareness of kidney disease and helping “end stage renal disease”  (ESRD) victims through organized rides and fundraisers. 
Mission

To bring hope and renewed faith to those suffering with kidney disease. 

Description
Chuck Hooper was diagnosed with ESRD in 2011.  This is a frightening diagnosis and one that results in years of suffering for victims and their families.  Chuck and his family were among the very rare as they had a miracle and guardian angel in Lisa Porterfield, Chuck’s wife’s best friend,  as she was a donor match and was more than willing to offer the selfiess gift of a kidney.    Lisa donated a… kidney to Chuck on February 5th, 2013 at UNC Hospital, in Chapel Hill, NC.  Chuck’s ESRD was short lived compared to the thousands that live on dialysis for many years.  Through experience and education received on kidney disease and renal failure, we felt it was our calling to raise awareness and bring hope to others that are suffering with this life threatening condition.
