Introduction to The Seed

Cristina, the initiator of #GMKIN, asked me to write a poem about relationships developed on #GMKIN to share at #UKKW2016. When I was first diagnosed with #ESRD eight years ago there were no local kidney information support groups that I was informed about or aware of. #GMKIN helps fill that gap. I hope people enjoy the video and it encourages other local #CKD #patients to join the group. I’m not very technical minded so I had some help from my teenage daughter in editing the video.

    I was in the audience supporting Cristina present at UKKW 2016 and watched your video and the feedback from health professionals after it was played was fantastic. Well done the poem was really creative, summed up some really good feedback for GMKIN from the people using it, which as one of the creators we envisaged and hoped for but it is reassuring that it provides the network and support people need. Well done. Paula

  • Hi Helen. Congratulations on your video clip! Thanks for sharing your great poem. It is about who walks in your life and who share your feelings, needs, empathy, support and care. GMKIN continues to be an important support mechanism for those living with this illness and all those who contribute, play a valuable part in this role………as your poem says. Well done. Audrey
