Who We Are

We are a Tribe of kidney disease warriors beating the drum of hope and change.

Founded by Analyn & Raymond Scott, 1in9 Charities, Inc. is an AZ non-profit corporation classified as a 501(c)(3) public charity with the IRS. 1in9 exists to create hope and change the trajectory of kidney disease.

Our vision is to save millions of lives through awareness, prevention, and expedited research and development of regenerative medicine treatments and solutions.

1in9 what we do

What We Do

  • Bring Awareness: By providing research and data on the risk factors, statistics, treatment options and personal stories in a creative outlet, we will educate individuals at risk and give hope to those already affected by kidney disease
  • Promote Prevention: By promoting preventive and corrective practices and solutions, we will reach, educate and empower the public to take charge of and improve their health
  • Champion Regenerative Medicine:  By highlighting existing and upcoming treatments and solutions, we will help experts in the field of regenerative medicine bring promising treatments and potential cures to the patient level much sooner

Why We Do It

Most adults who are “1 in 9” do not even know that they have kidney disease, much less are aware of the risk factors such as diabetes, high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease.

The time is now!

As we celebrate 22 years of life (and counting) since Raymond’s kidneys failed, we reflect on the knowledge gained through our own experiences and from picking up the torch of advocacy, and realize that it is time to challenge the status quo and bring Kidney Disease out of the public shadows of silence and misunderstanding and confront it head on. – Analyn & Raymond Scott
