Front Range Kidney Patients Association
« on: June 27, 2010, 07:35:45 PM »
I added a new link to the Other Resources page.  Front Range Kidney Patients Association has been providing excellent support and help to people dealing with ESRD since 1999.  I just came from a meeting today and was very impressed with the way they would reach out and help a newcomer who had just started dialysis.  If you want to meet experienced people with a big heart this is a place to go.  They have also featured some very talented speakers in the past.

I should mention I first met the founder of the organization back in 2007 when a group of us all got together to get a bill through for tech certification.  I found George Bravdica to be a warm, knowledgeable person who truly cared about what people were going through.  I can see his legacy has lived on with the organization today.
