NKFI Mourns the Passing of Advocate Lana Schmidt

We are heartbroken to learn of the recent passing of one of our dedicated volunteers and advocates, Lana Schmidt. Our deepest sympathies go out to her family and friends as they grieve her. She will be deeply missed.

Lana was a board member with the American Association of Kidney Patients. AAKP President Ed Hickey wrote a beautiful tribute to her legacy here. An excerpt is below.

Lana's passion for raising kidney disease awareness and advocating for improved patient care was unparalleled. She was driven by a profound desire to bring positive change and ensure that kidney patients across the nation could make informed and knowledgeable decisions about their health and quality of life.
Lana's legacy will live on through the countless lives she touched, the knowledge she imparted, and the positive changes she championed in the realm of kidney disease awareness and advocacy. Her spirit, compassion, and dedication will always be remembered and cherished by all who had the privilege of knowing her.
