It’s #PiDay… but it’s also #worldkidneyday! Critically important issue to me personally and so many Americans. 1/8
Many people with #chronickidneydisease don’t know it and it is major and rising cause of morbidity and mortality in the US and globally – we must do better! #heartyourkidneys #worldkidneyday 2/8
Today is also great opportunity to pay tribute to all of those courageous and generous people who have donated kidneys. Living donors should be better supported and we are working to make this happen. #worldkidneyday 3/8

Today is #WorldKidneyDay, so here is a thread about living on #dialysis & #OrganDonation. My name is Belinda Otas. I’m #African. I’m #Nigerian. I'm #Benin. I’m #British & I’m #Black. Beyond the nationalities or passports with my name, I also believe in our shared humanity.
I was 16, when I was diagnosed with End Stage Renal Failure (ESRF.) I had no idea what was happening to me because at the time, it made no sense. However, I remember the pain of that period like noonday. I lived on dialysis until i was 22. #dialysis #OrganDonation #renalhealth
It took over my teenage years. I don’t remember having much of a life as a teenager because dialysis was 3x a week & every session was 4hrs. Add the time it takes to recover from being exhausted by the process, my day was pretty much over. #dialysis #OrganDonation #renalhealth
