Medday Thursday: World Kidney Day! March O' the Kidney


It's World Kidney Day!  This morning Freeman Hospital’s Teri Williams talks about Chronic Kidney Disease and how a dialysis machine can keep a patient alive. 

Researchers find women are much more likely to donate a kidney than men.  Data from Europe shows 36% of women who are suitable donors give their kidney to their husband, but only 7% of men who are suitable donate to their wife. 

The March O’ the Kidney 1-Mile Walk honors dialysis patients.  The event is set for this Saturday at Joplin’s Northpark Mall.  100% of funds raised will stay local to help those suffering from kidney disease.  Click here for more information and to find a link to register.
