March is National Kidney Month, a time for raising awareness about kidney health and disease and the importance of prevention and early detection. Kidney disease is the 9th leading cause of death in the United States. More than 26 million Americans have kidney disease, and most don’t know it. There are over 95,000 people waiting for kidney transplants.

The Cleveland Rutherford Kidney Foundation’s (CRKA) main objective is to identify and help meet the needs of kidney disease patients in Cleveland and Rutherford Counties. The CRKA provides many services such as: transportation, medication and grocery assistance, stress management counseling, education, advocacy, referral services, post-transplant support, volunteer training, and much more.

The Arts Council and CRKA hope that this unique fashion show and exhibit will draw awareness to kidney disease and the importance of good health as well as opportunities for living organ donations.
