I donate to the Dialysis at Home Campaign

Have you ever heard someone say “I’m on dialysis because my kidneys are not working”?
What does it mean? How does kidney disease affect people’s lives?

Dialysis at home

“Being on dialysis” means having kidney disease which requires kidney replacement treatments to eliminate toxins and excess fluids that accumulate in the body due to very severe kidney failure. Hemodialysis can be done in a hospital, at satellite centres, or at home. Treatments usually last four hours and should be done three times a week.

To enable some patients to live better with their disease, the CHU Dumont Foundation has undertaken a crucial project to facilitate access to home hemodialysis for patients with kidney disease. This initiative will allow patients to receive the care they need in their homes. Such treatments can even be done while the patient is sleeping, reducing the burden of the disease on daily activities, and improving their quality of life.

Some patients are impatiently waiting to start treatments at home. That's why we're asking for your financial support to help cover the costs of acquiring specialized medical equipment, training staff, and setting up careful medical monitoring. Together, we can offer a more convenient and comfortable alternative for patients requiring regular hemodialysis sessions.


Your support means a lot, and we sincerely thank you for taking the time to consider our cause. Together, we can make a meaningful difference in the lives of people affected by kidney disease.


Thank you!
