Chronic Kidney Disease affects 26 million Americans. That’s 1 in every 9 adults, and most don’t even realize it. The leading causes of kidney disease are diabetes, high blood pressure, and a family history of these conditions. There are 83,000 people on the waiting list for a kidney transplant and one person dies every two hours while waiting for that kidney transplant.
“1in9” is a documentary to change the trajectory of kidney disease. This documentary will chronicle Raymond Scott’s 17-year journey, from kidney failure starting at the age of 29 to his competition at the 10th anniversary of Dancing with the Stars, AZ benefitting the National Kidney Foundation. The competition will take place at the Westin Kierland Resort Feb 20, 2016.
The goal of the documentary is to ignite a nationwide movement to promote awareness and prevention campaigns, as well as support expedited research and development of new treatment options including kidney regeneration. This focus will extend Raymond’s life and the lives of countless others, including those who share their own stories in the documentary.
We are also collaborating with doctors and researchers at the top of their field seeking innovative technologies to address the alarming number of people waiting for treatment.
