Empowering through Mentoring

ReMend can provide no-cost mentoring, encouragement and guidance through your kidney disease journey.

Our mission is to support and empower patients diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) and End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) to take charge of their kidney health. We do this by coordinating meaningful conversations with other kidney patients - ReMend Mentors who have “been there and done that”. Together, we build resiliency and strength.


Who We Are

ReMend is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that was formed with Balboa Nephrology Medical Group (BNMG), along with a core group of past and present End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) patients that have undergone either dialysis, kidney transplant or both.

Our mentors come from all walks of life and a vast array of backgrounds and experience. We come together in a single truth: we’ve all been affected by kidney disease, we know how you feel, and we’re committed to helping you overcome every challenge associated with this condition.


Let’s Do This Together

ReMend Mentors are not social workers or nurses, they’re real people who have had similar experiences and are willing to share their knowledge and provide a humanistic approach to dealing with ESRD. Mentors can engage with you to set goals surrounding all topics pertaining to coping, compliance, transplant and donation.

Its important to know YOU have a voice and can be your own advocate thru a challenging and frightening period in your life. ReMend is here to help.
