Kidney Walkers felt embraced by a caring kidney community
Kidney Walk Ambassadors Heather, Justin and Lucas Share Their Story

A few weeks after her initial diagnosis, Heather found a community that continues to motivate and support her.

In September of 2012, Heather and her family went out to their first Kidney Walk in Windsor. The community she found there made Heather feel hopeful. She strove to give back to this community by participating on Kidney Walk committees, organizing fundraising events with her husband, Justin, and speaking with other patients who were new to dialysis.
