Hi There, I dont know any support groups on the east side but you might want to check with the local hospitals. I live west of glendale but would be glad to talk and support you in any way. my second transplant is 10 years going, and though I have had many, many surgerys "not due to kidney" I spend alot of time doing research on other diseases that my family might have and one is chrons. I sit in the hospital this week because of a gi problem that hasnt been figured out, they say gallbladder, i say different lol Your kidney is alot tougher than people give credit to. Ive had brain tumors, pancreas surgury, hyst, and many more and my kidney is great!

In talking with the Kidney Foundation people, the only things they could offer up are these:

A “Hope Line” that is an online resource: 1-800-579-1970.
An online renal support group for patients across the country: http://www.Kidneyspace.com
