LaShawn’s Story - Kidney Disease

LaShawn Fortune of the Department of Commerce stands smiling.

My cause is kidney disease. I lost my aunt to kidney disease four years ago, and my mother was diagnosed with the disease last year and is now on the kidney donation list. LaShawn Fortune of the Department of Commerce stands smiling.

I have witnessed firsthand how much of a difference a donation makes in the lives of those who are helped by these charities. During my aunt’s fight with this disease, several CFC-supported charities were very helpful, pleasant, and provided us with the information, support and assistance we needed. I am counting on this same support for my mother.
