So why is supporting kidney research so important? Well over 3 million people in the UK are affected by Kidney Disease and 9 out of 10 people on the UK National Donor List are waiting for a kidney - thats why! Kidney Research UK has been making tangible differences to the lives of thousands of people across Scotland for a number of years but still needs our help. Kidney Research UK is the leading national charity dedicated to research that will lead to better treatments and cures for those suffering with kidney disease and to build a lasting legacy through research for those who have already lost that battle like Maggie Maguire and the thousands more loved ones.
