One Strong Voice

Tell your federal candidate during the October 2015 federal election there is no reason for 50% of Canadians with kidney failure to die needlessly from kidney failure before they get a kidney transplant.

Later this month, watch for your invitation to use an online tool to ask all federal candidates in your community to commit Canada to increasing kidney transplant & organ donation by 50% before 2020.

Health, Coping and Quality
of Life

Are you currently on hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis? Have you received a kidney transplant? Are you a family member of someone on hemodialysis/peritoneal dialysis or living with a kidney transplant?

If you answered “yes” to one of these questions, would you be willing to complete an online survey about your quality of life? It will take you approximately 30 minutes of your time and, if you complete the full survey, you could win an iPad mini!
