Kamloops Chapter

The Kamloops Support Group is up and running.  If you have been impacted by kidney disease, you should know that there is a support group in Kamloops.

 

We meet at 10 am on the second Saturday of every month.  

 

On July 9th we will be at the A&W in Valleyview but after that, from Aug. 13th on, the location will be Romeo's Restaurant in the Coast Hotel at 1250 Rogers Way.  

 

We are here to chat and/or answer questions about anything that is kidney related, and we are here for you, whether you may be pre-dialysis or on dialysis, a kidney donor or recipient or anything in between.  

 

For more information call Edna at 250.376.6361  Dorothy at 250.573.2988 

Mel (after 5) 250.376.8357 or Bruce (in Chase) 250-679-8481.

World Kidney Day, which will be on March 10, 2016, will be an even bigger Health Fair than we’ve had in the past with more "tests" being offered for free, including a kidney function screening (Preregistration is required).



We also fundraise by selling t-shirts and collecting all pull tabs which can be dropped off at the information table at RIH or at the CDU on the North Shore.

T-shirts are $20 and can be ordered by calling Linda at 250.579.2274 or emailing ednahumphreys@shaw.ca
