This week across Australia is Include A Charity Week, where Australians are encouraged to leave a gift in their Will to charities. Leaving a gift in your Will to Kidney Health Australia is the ultimate gift to ensure that people affected by kidney disease, and that of their families and carers, are supported through their kidney journey, enabling our vital programs and services, as well as groundbreaking kidney research to continue. Teresa and Dom have both made the decision to leave a gift in their Will to Kidney Health Australia, to give back for the gift that was given to them.

“Kidney Health Australia do an amazing job, they are always aiming to help people to learn to live with kidney disease, and I want to ensure that support continues for people when they are diagnosed with kidney disease, and when they are facing a transplant.”

Dom was diagnosed with a type of nephritis in 1993. Five years later, Teresa made the decision to donate a kidney to Dom being a 99% match and the operation took place the day before their wedding anniversary in March 1998. Each year the anniversary comes around, it’s a double blessing, for their marriage and Dom’s new life.

You too could support future generations like Teresa and Dom. By leaving a gift in your Will you can help give someone with chronic kidney disease something immensely precious back – their health and their life.

If you are considering making this significant decision, or have already left a gift in your Will, please be in touch with Roberta Armitage, our Bequest Officer on 03 9674 4383 or
