WELCOME TO KIDNEY CLUB
What is Kidney Club?
Kidney Club will be closing 31st May 2021
Kidney Club was originally founded by Kidney patient Stuart Smith. A website where patients with kidney disease, can talk to fellow patients and help with mental health. Kidney Club aimed to connect as many patients with each other as possible. To help each other with our mental health and talking about many other issues. Talking to fellow patients can help you understand what it is like on dialysis, as well as patients that have had a transplant.
Mental Health for example is something that many patients face through their time as a patient. One of the hardest things to accept is the new normal in terms of medication, changes to our body and much more. Whilst we might have great support from families, talking to a fellow patients can help in so many ways as they understand far better than most.
Each and every kidney patient has their own unique story. Stories are a great way for patients so see they are not alone as patients. Reading about another patients experience can really help is in so many ways. It also helps the media and researchers as well, looking for stories about organ donation and kidney disease for example. Have a look at some of the stories below from kidney patients. .
