Welcome to Jim's Personal Page
"I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the water to create many ripples."...Mother Teresa

I am excited that on September 7-9, 2018, I will be participating in the Kidney March 2018 to raise money for the Kidney Foundation. Although it will be a challenge for me to walk the 100 kilometers, I will be especially motivated by the excitement of knowing that it will benefit such a personal and worthy cause.

My daughter, Daina, is the inspiration behind the walk. She was diagnosed with Kidney Disease after she delivered her child, Cherie, three months prematurely due to a condition called Preeclampsia.  Daina nearly lost her baby and put her own life in jeopardy, but both mother and daughter fought through with fierce determination to live. Today Cherie is a healthy, loving and very busy grandchild.  

Daina manages her kidney disease, but it is a daily struggle. Fortunately, her optimism, support from family and zest for life has helped her stand up to the challenge of beating this disease. I want Daina to live a long life, watch her daughter grow up and become a grandmother. I want her to outlive me.  Unfortunately, there currently is no cure for kidney disease.    

However, we can make a difference by raising much needed dollars which would be used in the development of new medicines and cures by the medical scientists around the world. I am literally taking steps to fight kidney disease. I have two ambitious goals- first to meet my personal goal of raising funds for the Kidney Foundation so a cure can be found and secondly, to complete the walk. I am asking friends, family and colleagues and their network of connections to sponsor me for this event and/or join my team. Please donate to my Kidney March 2018 fundraising efforts; your help and support is vital.

Remember that step-by-step, we can do it! Thank you so much for your time and consideration. I look forward to whatever support you can provide as one of my sponsors, I will personally let you know how we do.
