Hyderabad Kidney Foundation , a support group for kidney disease patients in Hyderabad is organizing an event exclusively for dialysis patients. The event called 'Aashayein - Let's celebrate life' is a going to be a fun day for folks lucky enough to be on dialysis. There is going to be a skit by patients, a beautiful fistula contest, some games, some education, an elaborate lunch (as per the renal diet) and a whole lot of gifts. And the best part - its all FREE!!
The event is being sponsored by NephroPlus and Dr. Reddy's Labs.
This is probably the first event in the city that is being held exclusively for patients. This is a great opportunity for dialysis patients to meet other dialysis patients, have some fun and get some information about dialysis, transplants, the renal diet and a lot of other stuff. There are going to be talks by a nephrologist, urologist, dietician, caregiver and patients.
I will be there for sure. If you are on dialysis and in Hyderabad on February 6th, please come for the event. Its being held at the Hotel Fortune Select Manohar on the Begumpet Main Road, next to the old airport. The event is free for dialysis patients and one other person. If you register early, you can get a free gift too! To register, call 4004-8000 or visit the HKF website .
