THE STORY:

Dear Family and Friends,

As a branch of Brigham and Women's Hospital's Team Stork, I am running with the BWH Kidney Team to raise awareness for kidney disease and research. This will be my first marathon, and I'm very excited to run with our team.

Kidney disease affects 15% of the world population. It frequently goes undetected until most of the kidney function is lost. I am running together with the BWH Kidney Team to raise awareness and advance research in kidney transplantation, the main treatment option for kidney failure. In particular, our research is focused in developing a novel blood test that would allow us to identify kidney damage earlier, in time to initiate treatment before permanent loss occurs.

I am running in honor of Jaime Luo (no relation). Jaime received a kidney transplant after he developed kidney failure due to the toxicity of leukemia treatment. The bone marrow transplant he received for leukemia actually changed his blood type and led to a mismatched kidney type. Because of the innovative research at BWH, the BWH Kidney Transplant team was able to transplant a kidney with a different blood type. Through a combination of immunosuppression drugs, Jaime's immune system was able to accept the mismatched kidney.

These days, Jaime is doing very well. It is fighters and survivors like Jaime that drive us to further advance our field. With your help, we can continue to make a difference for kidney patients like Jaime.

Every little bit counts! ANY donation amount is much appreciated ($5, $10, $15...)

Thank you for your commitment to fight kidney disease!

Sincerely,

Angie
