DOUBLE your impact in the fight against kidney disease and diabetes!

1.5 million Australians are unaware they have early markers for kidney disease. Diabetes is amongst the top 10 leading causes of death in Australia, with Indigenous Australians almost three times as likely to have the condition. Can you imagine a world free from kidney disease and diabetes? Where no one faces daily pain, and no one fears their life will be cut short?  

By donating a generous gift this Giving Day, you will have a personal hand in ensuring we stop the heartbreak of kidney disease, diabetes, and pancreatitis, fight for our loved ones through world-class research and patient care.

Double your donation by giving on or before June 6!

We're fighting for our loved ones living with kidney disease, diabetes, and pancreatitis

As you may have personally experienced, a kidney disease, diabetes, or pancreatitis diagnosis at any stage of life is a huge shock. From battling kidney disease as a new mum like Kathy, to being diagnosed with pancreatitis at just 11-years-old like Chelsea, or receiving a lifesaving kidney transplant after battling type 1 diabetes for 50 years like Tony – these stories give us strength and courage to fight back.

But there is hope … Together, we can fight back against breast cancer through your deep compassion and generosity. Will you make a donation today and join the fight for our community by supporting world-class research and patient care? Your donation will be DOUBLED if you give on or before our Giving Day on 6 June! 

Together Fight web

Together, with you in our corner, we can support life-changing research and patient care!  

  • Professor Toby Coates and PhD candidate Jacqueline Scaffidi are investigating innovative approaches to protect the insulin-producing cells within the pancreas from being destroyed.
  • Dr Brett Tarca is trialling a 12-week exercise-based intervention as a potential strategy to enable better outcomes for our loved ones self-managing dialysis
  • Dr Erandi Hewawasam’s research is working to understand the safety of immunosuppressant drug Tacrolimus in pregnancy and developing a better testing method to guide dosage levels, improving safety for the mother, the baby, and the transplant. 

Let’s make a powerful difference this Giving Day and give our loved ones fighting kidney disease, diabetes, and pancreatitis the best chance to live their healthiest lives.

Toby Coates

It’s because of people like you that our loved ones fighting kidney disease, diabetes, and pancreatitis are supported to live their best lives, through ground-breaking research that brings us one step closer to a future free from disease and illness.
