Some weeks ago I read in the newspaper that the Danish kidney association was looking for volunteers who wanted to sell some scratch cards. If you buy a scratch card you can win a car, different kinds of gift cards and other things and the money from the scratch cards is spent on the activities of kidney association. They want to improve the treatment of kidney diseases and spread the knowledge about kidney diseases. Some of you have read the discussion that I started about my mother who donated a kidney to my father. I would like support the kidney association and I have decided to become a volunteer. In couple of days I will start selling the scratch cards and at the moment I am reading about the activities of the association and kidney diseases so that I will be able to answer the questions that I get when I sell the scratch cards. Do you support a patients association? In which way?

anything for a good cause is a good cause, so please keep it up i wish and pray for your success since you have a good heart, not only that but it stems from something out of your own personal experience so probably now it becomes sort of a personal crusade on your part instead of just merely helping people

Thank you Yes, this is something that I have personal experience with because of the surgery that my father went through last week. The Kidney Association works for patients with kidney diseases and now my father has become one of those patients. He plans on joining the Kidney Association when he gets back from the hospital. I have never sold scratch cards from the Kidney Association before, and I not sure if they are easy or hard to sell. I start with 250 scratch cards and if I sell them all I can get more scratch cards.

Since my time is tight, I may support financially I think. It is good to be of help. I am sure this what God wants to do: to help others.

In my country, kidney transplantation is very expensive and only very rich people can afford it. I heard it was better than dialysis. Is that right?

In my country medical treatment is paid through taxes so my parents didn't pay directly for the kidney transplantation. Our taxes are really high and some people pay almost 70% of their income to taxes, but the very high taxes mean that we can have any kind of medical treatment without paying directly for it. Many people complain about the taxes, but when we need medical treatment it is a big relief that we don't have to pay directly got the treatment. A kidney transplantation gives the patients a lot more freedom. When you depend on dialysis it is not easy to travel and your have to spend a lot of time at the hospital every week. My father's doctors recommended a kidney transplantation instead of dialysis and my father also thought a transplation was the best option since he wouldn't depend on dialysis. I hope that his new kidney is going to work for a long time. Sometimes the kidney stops working after some time, but if he is lucky it will work for several years.
