The NephCure Foundation is the only non-profit exclusively dedicated to researching and fighting the debilitating kidney disease, FSGS, and Nephrotic Syndrome by detecting the cause, improving treatment and striving to find a cure. In total, 26 million Americans suffer from Chronic Kidney Disease, with Nephrotic Syndrom as one of the most common forms.
Recenty, UPPAbaby was proud to be a sponsor at the first annual NephCure Walk in Providence, RI. In addition to raising money for research, the walk aimed to connect families with similar stories and raise awareness within the community. The NephCure Walk raised over $4,500 that will be used to fund research and ultimately, work to find a cure for all those affected with FSGC and Nephrotic Syndrome.
