Paul Popham Fund Peer Mentor Service
The Paul Popham Fund Peer Mentor Service serves a dual purpose, as we recruit and then train current Kidney Patients to Peer Mentor new kidney patients. This new service will aims to give new renal patients much needed support as well as offering them a shoulder to lean on as they come to terms with their diagnosis and the impact on their life.
We would like kidney patients who want to help others to call us and train to be a Peer Mentor. We would like kidney patients who need advice and support to call us so we can sign post to a Peer Mentor who can help them. If you fall into one of these categories, then we’d love to hear from you so please contact us.
Ray’s Renal Ray of Sunshine Run
As a mark of respect Alfie-Ray, aged 12, is planning on running an Ultra Marathon of 31 miles for the Renal Unit that supported Ray through his treatment. All the staff at the unit could not speak highly enough of Ray, he was so full of sunshine and laughter he made a lasting impression on everyone he met.
Ray sadly passed away in March this year and Alfie-Ray wishes to honour his memory.
