Please will you help families like Alex’s who face a shock diagnosis of kidney disease?
Fourteen-year-old Alex was healthy and active. But a routine blood test showed her kidneys had failed. She faced surgery, dialysis and a transplant.
Alex was in shock. “It was impossible to comprehend,” says her father Rob. Like many Australians, Alex and her family knew very little about kidney disease.
We urgently need your help to support people like Alex.
Alex’s life changed beyond recognition. She began eight hours of dialysis a night.
Rob, a policeman, is Alex’s primary carer. As father and daughter, they share a special bond. As soon as he could, Rob went through tests to find out if he could donate a kidney. When a match was confirmed, Rob and Alex began to prepare for the operation—desperately hoping it would be a success.
Give a gift today and you can help support families like Alex’s through the darkest days.
