SupporT RESEARCh for
THE Bionic Kidney Campaign
In the U.S. alone, 117,000 people need a life-saving kidney. With donor organs in extremely short supply, many die waiting. The Bionic Kidney Campaign is the opportunity to fund the solution. We want to make sure future families don't experience what ours is going through. Together, we can make that goal a reality. A team of researchers at the University of California, San Francisco, known as The Kidney Project, is creating a bioartificial kidney to eliminate the need for dialysis—a short-term, costly treatment—and donor organs. Phase 2 of their groundbreaking work, which includes in-human testing, will require an estimated $3 million a year. Please make a personally meaningful contribution today.
