Dialysis and Kidney Care Bill

CapitolA bill has been entered into the House of Representatives that is extremely important to all of us kidney and dialysis patients.   According to the Dialysis Patient Citizen:

This bill seeks to advance several proactive kidney care policy initiatives and provides a vehicle for educating Members of Congress and the public about the issues facing kidney disease patients and the kidney community as a whole.

Here’s what you need to do:

!. Contact your Congressional Representative!

That’s it!  There’s no step 2!   So, please take a moment, click the link above, and TAKE ACTION to send a message to your member of Congress.  You will have to enter information like name, address, etc.  but it’s secure on this website.  I have never been spammed by this group.  Also, you must enter that information because it will find who your Representative is and help you send him/her an email.

When you’ve done this, please post to your Facebook page, Twitter, Linkdin, etc.  Spread the word! Encourage your friends to do so, too!

We are a small community but we can have a loud voice if you add yours.

From Renal Support Network, here’s more about HB4814, the Kidney Care Bill. 

Thank you.

About DevonTexas

I am a person with ESRD (End Stage Renal Disease) which means my kidneys don't work. Forty or so years ago that would have been a death sentence but today there is Dialysis which means I can be hooked up to a machine that will clean my blood as the kidneys should. Three days a week, I go to a center and have too very large needles stuck in my arm to remove and replace my blood as it passes through a process where it's cleaned and the fluid is removed, a process taking a little over four hours each time. I want to advance knowledge about dialysis so that other patients can learn from my experience and mistakes. We shouldn't have to reinvent the wheel, eh? There is so much to be learned and experienced about our predicament. There are vast resources available to support us and enrich our lives but many patients don't know about them. There are also many issues that we have to deal with whether we want to or not. So I blog about them. All comments are confidential until I approve them. If you don't want your comment public, let me know and I will respect that. So, feel free to leave a comment. Enjoy.
