Tackle Kidney Disease to be held Saturday evening - Cincinnati News, Weather, Sports from FOX19 NOW-WXIX

Woman honors mom with Kidney Disease benefit


What do football and kidney disease have in common? Kaci Kust.

Kust, in collaboration with the National kidney Foundation, is hosting Tackle Kidney Disease. The event features a fashion show to benefit the National Kidney Foundation.

In May of 2012, Kust's mother was diagnosed with FSG syndrome- a hidden disease caused by kidney failure. She was completely healthy prior to the diagnosis.

Kust was blind sided by the diagnosis. "I can't heal my mom's kidneys or give her a new one, but I know I can raise money and awareness to help fight the disease that almost took her from me," said Kust in a press release. "That realization is how Tackle Kidney Disease was born."

The show will be held Saturday evening at the Bell Event Center from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
