It is with the greatest sadness that the Kidney Support Network advises our Members, Volunteers, friends and families of the passing of our angel, Lyndal Clark. Lyndal has led our Childhood Kidney Support Program as Volunteer Coordinator for several years, providing support to many families and children who have faced the challenges of Kidney Disease and the rigours of kidney dialysis and kidney transplant.
