April 20, 2020 – The Mississippi Kidney Foundation has received generous support from the Fresenius Medical Care North America (FMCNA). As the nation’s leading provider of kidney care products and services, FMCNA is the largest provider of dialysis in Mississippi and has generously supported the MKF in the past. FMCNA and the MKF have aligned missions, concentrating on the health and wellbeing of kidney disease patients. This new support is the largest and most distinguished that the MKF has received from FMCNA and will have a sustainable impact on the lives of Mississippians. We look forward to utilizing this generous support to raise awareness of kidney disease and provide community driven care for kidney disease patients throughout Mississippi.
“We are committed to empowering people living with kidney disease to thrive and succeed with treatment options that fit their lifestyles and personal values, recognizing that transplant or home dialysis is often the best option, as well as supporting education and models of care that slow progression of the disease. We are proud to sponsor organizations that provide important support and hope to people living with kidney disease.”Bill Valle, chief executive officer of Fresenius Medical Care North America
The MKF is thankful for FMCNA’s continued and generous support. This news serves as a dose of encouragement during these unprecedented times and when we recognize that dialysis patients’ vulnerability has become even more heightened.
