1 in 3 Australians are at risk kidney disease which can be deadly and incurable. If caught early, progression to kidney failure can be slowed or stopped.
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 follow up campaign to carry on the fight in Shane’s name and get the message out about early detection.
Currently, 1.5 million Australians are unaware they are living with early signs of kidney disease. People with diabetes and high blood pressure are at higher risk. Take the Kidney Risk Test now and we will help you understand your risk and vital next steps.Take the Kidney Risk Test
