Thank You to All of Our Generous Donors in 2023

Given in memory of KPAC member Dawn Goertz: "Dawn was such an important voice in our Kidney Patient Advisory Council family. She was passionate about improving dialysis care [and] at times downright angry, and rightfully so. We will work to carry forward all the good she started. She will be missed."
