Each year, the American Kidney Fund presents the Caregiver of the Year award to someone who goes “above and beyond” to provide care and support to a dialysis or kidney transplant patient. Renal professionals, as well as friends and loved ones of patients, are eligible for this award. The person who is selected as the Caregiver of the Year will be honored at the annual AKF Hope Affair, on October 22, 2014, in Washington, D.C. The Hope Affair celebrates the people who inspire us in the fight against kidney disease. The deadline for nominations is July 29, 2014.
