Meet Kelli Sewell
Kelli Sewell from Detroit’s East Side has survived the pandemic so far and is surviving kidney disease thanks to a kidney transplant in June 2017.
She fears that her husband Anthony, hospitalized (not with COVID) since November 2020, may not return home. Having successfully raised three sons, one with sickle cell disease, on her own, Kelli says she doesn’t waste any time feeling sorry for herself. In fact, she turns those negative feelings into action.
NKFM works to shape public policy on behalf of kidney disease patients and those at risk, those with diabetes and high blood pressure, the leading causes of kidney failure.
The National Kidney Foundation of Michigan’s main focus is maintaining the state funding for programs to prevent or manage diabetes high blood pressure and kidney disease. These programs are critical to improving quality of life for those living with kidney disease and those at risk. We work to maintain this funding and educate lawmakers about its importance.
The National Kidney Foundation (NKF) helps to shape public policy on behalf of kidney disease patients. We work with Congress and federal agencies, as well as with state governments to further legislation and regulation that improve the care and quality of life of kidney disease patients.
