Proceeds from the Rocky Mountain School of Baseball’s 2013 Easter Tournament will benefit community members receiving dialysis care. Rocky Mountain School of Baseball based in Logan, Utah is celebrating 20 years of providing youth baseball programs in the Intermountain West.
In 2007, Dennis Udy, founder, was diagnosed with kidney failure and received dialysis treatments at Logan Regional Hospital three days a week for 13 months. Dennis was fortunate to have the opportunity to receive a kidney from his son Matt Udy on December 30, 2008.
So many people, like Dennis, have received or currently are receiving dialysis treatments but have not yet had an opportunity for kidney transplant. The Rocky Mountain School of Baseball would like the proceeds from this tournament to benefit these people by enhancing or providing dialysis services for them. The Rocky Mountain School of Baseball will continue our commitment to give back to the medical community.
The Grateful Patient program is a way for patients and their families to acknowledge the great care they received, and provides an opportunity for patients to show gratitude to the physicians, nurses, and other caregivers that played a special role in their care.
