Make a Gift Today to Help Create a Healthier Michigan
A letter from Danielle Mier, a mom to two young children with kidney disease-
The National Kidney Foundation of Michigan is a cause that is very close to my heart. Polycystic Kidney Disease runs in my family and both of my children have the disease. My son, Shane, is 4 and my daughter Lorelai is 18 months. We discovered before Lorelai was born that her kidneys were very affected by the disease. She spent 26 days in the NICU after her birth. She is now very healthy, but her kidney function is only about 30%. Due to her kidney disease she has many complications and is on several medications daily. Chances are good that she will need several kidney transplants in her life. I don’t want her to have ANY kidney transplants. Please support the National Kidney Foundation of Michigan in helping find a cure for kidney disease and help provide support for patients living with this awful disease.
Thank you, Danielle Mier

Supporting Our Mission
The National Kidney Foundation of Michigan has many opportunities for you to give to support our mission. Each gift contributes to creating a healthier Michigan. Through our Programs for Early Childhood Health, we hope to educate every child how to protect their health by eating better and exercising more. Through our Prevention & Education programs we aim to create a place where diabetes and kidney disease are no longer epidemics, where dialysis units are not needed, and where everyone needing a transplant would receive one without a wait.
This vision for a healthier Michigan inspires many to support the National Kidney Foundation of Michigan with a donation towards our programs and services.
