"I am not a kidney patient.  I was a full time secretary in the Kidney Unit for 16 years and joined the SCKPA in 1986.  I joined the committee as secretary in 2002 after I had retired from full time work.   I became Membership Secretary in 2004.  It is a pleasure and humbling to serve an association of such stoic patients and their partners."

"My kidney failure was brought on from years of being diabetic, and in January 2014 I was put on HD. On the 11th of December 2014 (Sidney's Birthday) I received a kidney from my father (through the paired exchange scheme). The kidney rejected after a few days but the medical team at The Churchill worked their magic and saved "Sidney da Kidney" who has been fine ever since."
