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 at Romeo's Kitchen in the Coast Hotel at 1250 Rogers Way. We also meet on the second Wednesday of the month at Denny's on Tranquille Road at 10 am.

 

We welcome everyone and anyone who would like to join our informal coffee chat/group and discuss kidney-related issues.

 

For more information call Edna at 250.376.6361,  Dorothy at 250.573.2988
