As all might be aware, World Kidney Day this year is March 12. It’s not too soon to plan something to be involved with. However, I have to wonder why we only merit a day and not a week. A day goes by so fast, especially if you’re on dialysis. Those of us doing nocturnal have a bit more time, but still need to set up and come off in waking hours. Besides, since we all in favor of more frequent dialysis, we should celebrate by extending the time we talk and act for better dialysis to more than a mere day. What do you think?
March is National Kidney month. So y’all get more than a week in the U.S.
And in March in the US, in addition to being National Kidney Month it is also:
[li]Mental Retardation Awareness Month http://www.rcomo.org[/li][li] National Brain Injury Awareness Month http://www.biausa.org[/li][li] National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month Prevent Cancer Foundation http://www.preventcancer.org/colorectal[/li][li] National Endometriosis Awareness Month Endometriosis Research Center http://www.endocenter.org[/li][li] National Multiple Sclerosis Education and Awareness Month Multiple Sclerosis Foundation http://www.msfocus.org[/li][li] National Nutrition Month® American Dietetic Associationhttp://www.eatright.org[/li][li] Save Your Vision Month American Optometric Association http://www.aoa.org[/li][li]Workplace Eye Wellness Month Prevent Blindness America http://www.preventblindness.org[/li][/ul]
Well, with only 12 months to work with, you have to figure on some overlap…
