Quote  from Harold: “I am pleased to support KidneyTexas and be a part of the luncheon on September 12th. The good work they do is even more meaningful to me now that I have had a kidney transplant.  My new kidney was given to  me by my daughter, Amy.”

       A special section dedicated to Harold Simmons will be in the program.  Supporters have asked to have their names listed – so donations are being taken to be listed on that page. Contact KidneyTexas for more info.

Mission Statement:
The purpose of KidneyTexas, Inc. is to provide funding to improve the methods of treatment, the search for a cure and prevention of kidney disease and other kindred or contributory diseases; and to develop more adequate provision for the care of persons suffering from such diseases.


Debilitating kidney diseases impact approximately 20 million people in the United States today. Groups at high risk include African Americans, Hispanics, senior citizens and people with diabetes. In Texas, there are over 30,000 people on dialysis and 4,000 on a transplant list. The number of patients on dialysis is anticipated to double this decade.


Since 1999, the dedicated volunteers of KidneyTexas, Inc. have worked in tandem with our generous underwriters to raise over $1.5 million for local efforts to improve the ability to diagnose and manage kidney disease.
