NephCure Welcomes New Life Church NephCure offers resources for learning how to keep your kidneys healthy and support for those suffering from chronic kidney disease and kidney failure. Our kidneys are responsible for filtering blood, balancing fluids, and meeting so many needs that we rarely think of. NephCure offers guidance on how to protect these vital organs, like eating a kidney-friendly diet, looking for the warning signs of kidney issues, and knowing which questions to ask your doctor to stay on top of your kidney health. For those suffering from Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) or who are on dialysis due to kidney failure, NephCure can assist with finding a specialist, clinical trials, and treatment options. Support for the Supporters FSGS is a rare kidney disease, and people of African descent are 5 times more likely to get FSGS compared to the general population. NephCure is dedicated to helping those who are affected by rare kidney disease, like Sachet and her family. After her son was diagnosed in 2017, Sachet quickly found NephCure and has come to us for support and community ever since.

Just trying to strike that balance between being responsible about my health and making sure that I’m enjoying life.” Read Kevin’s Story Fallon Bell “My diagnosis has allowed my family to have more open communication about not only my diagnosis, but theirs as well, and we’ve been able to learn from one another and make better decisions about our healthcare.” Read Fallon’s Story NephCure is grateful to HEAL Collaborative for their joint work on the Health Equity Initiative.
