About the foundation

@SaveaKIDney

Once upon a time, in a world full of challenges and hopes, Darius, a brave child was born with a severe kidney diagnosis. His parents went through a time of trials and tears as they learned of the high-risk pregnancy and survived a life-threatening birth and the first night in hospital. For the first two years they accompanied their child on the path of health. Learning to perform peritoneal dialysis, a process that was not only physically but also emotionally demanding.


Yet out of this darkness and despair a spark of hope emerged. His Mom, Tomesha, decided to set up a foundation to help other families in similar situations. Recognizing the lack of support and community she wanted to create a place where those affected could find comfort, resources and a voice.


With each passing day, the determination to make this vision a reality grew. Fighting against all obstacles, Darius helped and worked to improve the situation of children with kidney disease. Their family story, in the book Purpose In Pain, became an inspiration to many who also faced difficult challenges.


And so his legacy lives on in the creation of a foundation that brought light and hope into the lives of families scarred by serious illness. His story was a reminder that from life's darkest moments often come the greatest acts of love and care.

I am thrilled to be sharing with you the excitement and struggle that has been creating this foundation for all of you that have been experiencing kidney disease and transplant life.


We have experienced hard times, joyful moments and down right scary occurances, but we are here.


I invite to continue to take this journey with me and connect as we help others to do the same. Live a life of unity and strength together with hope.


As my favorite quote says, "Your life is on purpose with a purpose, live it out!"

Konnection Kounts

In the Konnection Kounts program we have the opportunity to share with families more understanding and educational materials concerning kidney disease diagnoses. We help them to understand what at times can be a complicated world of kidney disease and transplant life. With Kidney Kounts our goal is to make medical language easier to understand and the journey easier to not only survive, but thrive through!
