Kids battling kidney disease are forced to lead very different lives. They have rigid diets (no chocolate or cheese!? Yikes!), physically look different and constantly feel sick. Dialysis treatment requires a large time commitment and the patients often miss out on school and other social events roughly three days a week.
This can be stressful and complicated for kids to handle so we like to use the power of positive rewards! Through our Dialysis Rewards program, patients can earn "Dialysis Dollars" for taking their meds, following their diets and setting personal goals. The kids can then cash in their "Dialysis" Dollars" for fun things like video games, shopping sprees, toys and other fun prizes!
