It can happen to anyone this fast... as most of us know on our team.
NCAA baseball player, Kevin Jordan, was near death last year when an autoimmune disease attacked his kidneys and sidelined him from the game he loved. Today, he's back on the field perfecting his swing, thanks to the generosity of his Coach, Tom Walter.
Coach Walter gave more than confidence, baseball tips and discipline. He gave up his own kidney to save Jordan's life. For Walter, this was the best day of his coaching career—by far. Just seeing Jordan in his uniform doing what he loves to do is the ultimate win.
College baseball coach Tom Walter knows a thing or two about gift-giving and so he's teamed up with the National Kidney Foundation this holiday season to spread the word about the ultimate gift—the gift of life through kidney donation. Please consider helping others like Kevin get a second chance. Your tax deductible contribution to the National Kidney Foundation will help support advocacy and education programs for organ donation so that we can end the wait for the 90,000 Americans currently on the kidney transplant waiting list.
NKF relies on the financial contributions and volunteer efforts of individuals and corporations committed to supporting its life-saving efforts. Don't wait. The 2011 tax year ends December 31. Please make your gift today.
Best wishes for a healthy New Year and thank you for helping support the 26 million Americans with kidney disease and the tens of thousands waiting for the gift of life.
