With 1 in 3 Australians adults at risk of kidney disease, this Kidney Health Week we are calling out to all Australians, particularly those living with diabetes and/or hypertension, to get a Kidney Health Check.
Last September we launched our early detection campaign, #nofilter, featuring Shane and his family. Shane was diagnosed with kidney disease following detection of high blood pressure. The campaign showed the impact dialysis had on his and his family’s life. Tragically, Shane passed away from a heart attack in December, at just 48 years old.
As a tribute to him, his wife Jodie and five daughters will be featuring in the campaign during Kidney Health Week to carry on the fight in Shane’s name and get the message out about early detection.
While the campaign does carry a heartbreaking message about Shane’s battle with kidney disease, it also carries a message of hope – that if caught early enough, Progression of kidney disease can be slowed down or even stopped.
Together we can help more people ensure our critical message is spread as far as possible and help more people detect kidney disease early to prevent a life with #nofilter.
