|Subject:||“Pediatric Kidney Disease Awareness Week” (Week of October 17 through 23, 2016)|
|Please join me in co-sponsoring a resolution designating the week of October 17 through 23, 2016, as “Pediatric Kidney Disease Awareness Week” in Pennsylvania.
Currently, there are 42 children in Pennsylvania waiting for a kidney transplant.
In 2015, 36 children in Pennsylvania have had a life-saving kidney transplant.
Since 1988, 1,190 children in Pennsylvania have had a life-saving kidney transplant.
The National Kidney Foundation and its regional programs throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania are continuing their work in researching this disease; aiding those who suffer from the disease; and increasing national awareness. I hope you will join in this resolution to help raise awareness in Pennsylvania.
Thank you for considering co-sponsoring this resolution.
