Kruizin for Kidneys is a non-profit organization that helps raise awareness of kidney disease and to help end End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) through organized rides and fundraisers.
Jammin Jukebox brings to you the story of Lisa Porterfield and Chuck Hooper. 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, Kruizin for Kidneys felt it was their calling to raise awareness and bring hope to others that are suffering with this life threatening condition.
It's good to talk.
