Program

The Kidney Foundation Northern Superior (Thunder Bay) - Peer Support

Being diagnosed with a chronic illness is life-changing and can happen with little or no warning. We’re here to provide emotional support and resources to help people live well with kidney disease.  


Peer support is one of our key services. Talk to others with similar life experiences about what to expect when learning to live with kidney disease. You and your family members will be paired with trained volunteers who have first-hand experience coping with kidney disease. 


Peer Support volunteers do not offer medical advice, but they can tell you about their experience with kidney disease and how they balance family life, work and social activities. They'll be able to answer many of your questions, because they've been there too.
