I was asked to set up a stand with some of my photographs to promote how transplants can change lives and through my photos I met lots of really interesting and some really inspirational people. The food was utterly amazing was all cooked up by celebrity chef Lawrence Keogh. He had a kidney transplant himself 10 years ago and so fully understood the dietry requirements of people on dialysis. As a result he has created a renal friendly cook book and cooked items from that. They are free, and absolutely fab. You wouldn't know that the food had no salt or potassium in it at all, was so tasty.... Num num num.
World Kidney Day is a fantastic way to raise awareness for kidney disease and also to encourage people to look after their own kidneys by drinking lots of water and eating less salt. I hope to be involved next year.
