Dear Nancy: 

On behalf of Kidney Care Partners, I would like to thank you for your leadership in arranging for so many congressional visits both in DC and at their home district. 

You and your team have increased awareness of the US Congress of kidney disease and dialysis, the hardships that ESRD patients endure, and the tremendous work that nurses and other staff perform on a daily basis to serve these patients and provide them with life-saving treatment. 

I do hope this will get more legislatures to recognize all the great elements of the "ESRD Modernization" bill and will improve its chances of passage. 

Thank you on behalf of all the members of Kidney Care Partners, and please feel free to share this with your members, and encourage them to continue their very valuable work.

Sincerely,  (signed)

Raymond M. Hakim, MD, PhD
