Nadia Needs A Kidney
Hi, my name is Nadia and I need a kidney! I'm 10 years old; a student at PS 83 in Bronx, New York. One day I was very sick and we went to the hospital. That's when we found out I have End Stage Renal Disease. I had to go for dialysis 3 or 4 times a week, sometimes stay in the hospital. Soon I will have an operation to correct a vascular problem and require dialysis for 10 hours a day, 7 days a week. My mom and family takes care of me and some new friends are trying to help me find a kidney.

Nadia Uddin the ten year old neighborhood girl who needs a kidney!
MPCA members, AnnaMaria DiNofrio and Mark Anthony have been working hard in their fundraising efforts for Nadia and her family. They have placed containers donated by J&D Snacks, Utz Distributors in local businesses.
AnnaMaria has worked closely with J&D Snacks who have also generously donated Utz chips. She has also started a campaign with Nadia's school P.S 83.

It is also known as Chronic Renal Failure or Kidney Failure. It's what I have. It means that my kidneys don't work. It's permanent, my kidney won't get better... I NEED A KIDNEY.
Why I Need a Kidney?
Pretty much, kidneys filter the blood and get rid of all the waste, extra water and stuff called electrolytes which your body doesn't need. They keep your bodies fluids balanced. Kidneys also help regulate blood pressure by getting rid of extra sodium. They also release a hormone which helps produce red blood cells in our bone marrow which are then released into our bloodstream. Kidneys also regulate calcium and other minerals and work with some of our other body organs to make sure our ones grow and are healthy.
