Following a recent letter to the editor in the Kansas City Star, kidney patients continue to urge their congressional representatives to support KidneyX during the Senate appropriations process.

Cutessa Bourge, a kidney transplant recipient in Alabama, and Ann Rayburn, her Alabama kidney donor, called on Senator Richard Shelby (R-AL) to support the needs of the 645,665 patients with kidney disease in Alabama by supporting KidneyX in a new op-ed on Al.com. As Chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee, Senator Shelby will have considerable influence on the Senate appropriations process. Ms. Bourge’s and Ms. Rayburn’s guest commentary piece can be viewed in its entirety here.
