Thank you for visiting the Metro D.C. Community of NephCure Kidney International. We are here to provide patient education, research fundraising, and, more importantly, a voice of experience. Our mission will always be to connect ALL local Nephrotic Syndrome patients (newly diagnosed and chronic) to NephCure, and steer them to needed resources.
The goals of the Metro D.C. Community are to:
- Serve as an immediate support system for newly diagnosed and chronic patients
- Help raise money for NephCure research to find a cure for this rare kidney disease
- Harness the power of connections to aid in every local family’s Nephrotic Syndrome journey
