Living Kidney Donation and Sharing Your Story

When: Sunday, March 17th 2013, from 2:00pm to 4:00pm

Where: St. Joseph's Healthcare Hamilton, Classroom B (T2208), 2nd Floor, Juravinski Tower, 50 Charlton Avenue East

Speaker: Jeff Robertson, Executive Director of the PKD Foundation of Canada

We hope you can join us as Jeff Robertson explains what living donation is, along with how to have conversations with people about the process. You will also learn how to help raise overall awareness of the need for living kidney donation; including tips on how to share your personal story with friends, family and the media.

Before taking on the role of Executive Director in 2008, Jeff was actively involved with the PKD Foundation of Canada as both Chapter and Walk Coordinator for Toronto. He continues to be the volunteer Toronto Walk Coordinator and remains actively involved in the Toronto Chapter on a daily basis.

Having been raised in a family afflicted with PKD (both his mother and grandmother have this disease), he learned at a very young age, the importance of self-advocacy and sharing one's PKD journey with friends, family and the media in order to generate as much attention as possible for PKD and organ donation awareness.

This presentation is part of an ongoing series of two-hour informational support meetings hosted by the Hamilton Chapter of the PKD Foundation of Canada. They are open to the public, free of charge and the venue is wheelchair accessible. Local street parking (free) and hospital parking (payment required) is available.
