Kidney Foundation seeks Agassiz-Harrison volunteers

Search for volunteer canvassers for Agassiz, Harrison neighbourhoods

On behalf of the Kidney Foundation of Canada, B.C. branch, I would like to thank the volunteer canvassers in the Agassiz-Harrison Hot Springs area for your valuable time. Your efforts will help improve the lives of people living with kidney disease.

I will not mention your individual names, but you know who you are that have volunteered in Agassiz and Harrison Hot Springs.

Kidney disease is a serious disease with no cure at this time. Early detection may prevent or delay the need for life-saving dialysis or a kidney transplant. Ask you family doctor for the simple EGFR test.

The Kidney Foundation is dear to me because I lost a daughter to kidney failure when she was a young woman with two children.

I do not know exactly how many people’s lives have been affected by this serious disease, but I am sure that there are a great number though family, friends or loved ones.

More volunteer canvassers means the possibility of more donations to aid in the research of kidney disease. If we could get more volunteers to even canvas the street they live on or a particular areas of the community, the chances of greater success could be achieved.

The 2015 door-to-door campaign will start on the first day of March. If you wish to volunteer and play an integral part in the overall mission of the kidney foundation, to better the lives of people and families living with kidney disease, the Kidney Foundation of Canada, B.C. Branch can be reached at 604-736-9775 or 1-800-567-8112 ext. 225.
