To highlight the needs of people with kidney disease, organizations from across our state have come together to create the Illinois Kidney Care Alliance (IKCA), a coalition of health advocates and professionals, community and patient groups, providers, and businesses. IKCA is focused on raising awareness of the needs of people who suffer from End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), a condition also known as kidney failure.
We’re proud to count Gift of Hope Organ & Tissue Donor Network among IKCA’s inaugural members. Gift of Hope proudly serves as the federally designated not-for-profit organ procurement organization (OPO) that coordinates organ and tissue donation and services to families of donors in the northern three-quarters of Illinois and northwest Indiana.
With more than 30,000 Illinoisans suffering from kidney failure, and 100,000 Americans awaiting a kidney transplant, IKCA’s goal is to protect the most vulnerable, those currently on life-sustaining dialysis, and those waiting for a functioning kidney. For more information, please visit our website.
