Spring Lake resident Linda Lewis, left, has become one of the state’s top fundraisers for the National Kidney Foundation. She is shown here with friend Ruth Cross.

Linda Lewis is about as invested in raising awareness for kidney disease as it gets.

The Spring Lake resident is a leading fundraiser for the National Kidney Foundation of Michigan (NKFM). She’s an advocate for encouraging donations, both monetary and through live organ transplants. In fact, Linda has already donated her spare kidney, and she wants people to know they can save lives with theirs.
