Adults with #chronickidneydisease   are at increased risk for #pneumococcal disease, a potentially serious infection. Those over 65 and those with #asthma, #diabetes, or #heartdisease   are also at high risk. Getting vaccinated is the safest, most effective way to protect yourself. Ask your healthcare provider about vaccination today!

Not happy with your 2013 tax return? We can help! Go to www.kidneycars.org and donate your vehicle to Kidney Cars! You'll help the National Kidney Foundation to help others, and you’ll help yourself on Tax Day next year – your donation will be tax-deductible!

You’ll raise your spirits, by helping to support the programs that the National Kidney Foundation offers – programs that inform the public and help those already affected by kidney disease, as well as their families. It’s good karma and good finances!

The National Kidney Foundation's Kidney Cars program has been the most trusted car donation program for more than 30 years. Each year, proceeds from donated vehicles pump millions of dollars into our life-saving services for kidney patients and those at risk. Nearly 80% of all the proceeds from donated vehicles go directly to the National Kidney Foundation’s programs.
