Grammy Award-winning singer Natalie Cole has become a national spokesperson for the United Kidney Research Organization (UKRO), a non-profit group which supports medical research into the prevention, treatment and elimination of the disease.

Cole’s role as spokesperson will include raising public awareness of the various forms of kidney disease along with supporting the non-profit organization’s fundraising efforts.

Natalie Cole, daughter of singer Nat “King” Cole, received a kidney transplant in May 2009 after almost ten months on kidney dialysis.

“As someone who has been affected by a form of kidney disease, I recognize that I survived kidney failure and am alive and healthy today because of the availability of improved treatments, procedures and medications devised from decades of medical research,” Cole said. “Through my involvement, I hope to bring greater recognition to the UKRO’s fundraising efforts for kidney research.”
