Helpful Links for Kidney Kids (and those who love them)


Dairy Delicious: Yummy low-potassium, low-phosphate milk and cheese sauces for people following renal diets. Affordable medical alert bracelets that not only come in kids sizes, but also have fun interchangeable nylon bands that are actually kind of cool!

National Kidney Foundation Cookbook: A great resource full of dozens of renal diet recipes. Note that extra “S”….it’s an important distinction! This is a nifty place to find online support groups for parents and children.

Children’s Hospital of Michigan: Probably the nicest place to be, if you’re miserable. Seriously though- everyone here is wonderful. Please consider making a donation to their organ donation program.

Make-A-Wish Foundation of Michigan: MAWF does nothing less than make dreams come true for sick children like Rory. His “wish trip” on the Nickelodeon Cruise last summer was the highlight of our lives!

The Gift of Life Foundation: Everything you’ve ever wanted to know about organ donation.

Halachic Organ Donation Society: Everything you’ve every wanted to know about being Jewish AND an organ donor!

The Bedwetting Store: Carrier of the Holy Grail for urology parents: a watch that will beep AND vibrate AND can be set to cycle repeatedly without needing to be reset by parent or child. The VibraLite3 is not perfect, but it’s the best we’ve found so far. Highly Recommended.
