2013 Kidney Walk

Once again I will be participating in the Los Angeles Area Kidney Walk. Last year I blogged as to why I participate: I have kidney disease. Thankfully, with an excellent nephrologist, diet, and medication it is somewhat under control. I am somewhat prepared for what very well could be the inevitable choice: dialysis or kidney transplant. 

Like many diseases and conditions, many people are unaware that they have a kidney condition. I encourage everyone to read this article. It could just save your life.

I'm not good at asking people for help. It's the stubborn Taurus in me. But this last year has shown me that I do indeed have a serious condition. I know so many of my followers are also struggling with health issues. Once again I'm reaching out to this blogger community. If you feel so inclined and can help, all donations are greatly appreciated. No donation is too small. Or too large! 

Here's the link to my page:

I'm ready and willing to donate to this great cause. My Mom died of kidney failure and it's complications.
My creatinine blood level test results climbed to 6 last year! It scared the shit out of me! I had to go right in the hospital. But with diet and mostly exercise I'm back to 0.5 to 1.1 which is normal for male adults.
So good luck in your efforts Mark and best of health to you!
