I just wanted to send out a very special thank you to all the caregivers of us fellow tx patients. I certainly feel that without you, alot of us wouldnt be where we are today..strong, feeling positive, on the mend. You truly do make a difference. We may have our "bad", emotional filled days, but you stick by us..you are heroes.

I just moved into an apt with my boyfriend two months ago and am on CPP (I have been unable to return to work - I am back on the liver tx list-) I recently tried to apply for ODSP and was denied because of my "receiving income from another source"> ODSP is saying that my boyfriend and I are common law and therefore I don't qualify. Has anyone else had difficulty getting ODSP?.I read KidneyKorner.com's reply and was curious. Thanks :)

Hi everyone, I am from Whitby Ontario, I have familial amyloidosis. I had my liver transplant in Nov/09, since my liver was healthy just not in my body; I pass my liver to another in need of a liver. Hope his is doing well and his family. If anyone else has this condition I would like to hear from you. I am so very thankful that I have difficulty in expressing my self but want to shout out loud on my experiences/journey. Thank you Gift of Life.

Hi Sandra, i wonder might you be going to the US games this summer, to Madison? I am. I hope you are. Anyone else going to these games? I am going as a cheerleader and also as one in waiting. Should be exciting. Anyone going to the Canadian CTA games in Quebec?

I am also from London, Ontario. I have been stable, and been assessed for a heart transplant since 1994. It's a very long time. I feel extremely blessed to have managed this long, however my life is restricted which brings challenges within it. I have much support which is so important. I also work extremely hard with a local London Association for awareness, and feel blessed to be on the provincial committee and local London Hospital Committee. Turning tragedy into a blessing, with much passion. My special partner is from Arizona and a heart recipient, so it is very interesting learning more within the system and awareness there. Has anyone waited this long for a heart before being listed as i am stable, it was thought i would need a heart 16 years ago? I'd love to hear your story. Also anyone from London who wishes to help us, please let me know we are always welcoming others to join us with awareness.

Too many people ignore the close inter-relation between kidney diseases and diabetes or hypertension. Worldwide, 246 million people suffer from diabetes and the figure is expected to reach 380 million by 2025. Diabetic nephropathy affects a third of people suffering from diabetes. Sadly, less than half people diagnosed with diabetes undergo a screening test.
Next Word Kidney Day will be held on Thursday 11 March 2010 and will focus on Diabetes, the leading cause of kidney failure.

World Kidney Day offers a crucial, visible opportunity to inform and educate health policy-makers, people who are at highest risk of CKD, and the general public that kidney disease is common, harmful and treatable.

Join our World Kidney Day 2010 group and come to exchange your experience and ideas that could be proposed to World Kidney Day organisers over the world.

The success of World Kidney Day across the world is only possible because of each of you!
