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.

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 email@example.com
