It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to Roger Hillier. Roger was a Can-SOLVE CKD patient partner whose commitment to improving the health of those living with kidney disease inspired us all. As a member of six project teams, Roger devoted countless hours to advancing research into polycystic kidney disease, living donor transplantation, dialysis symptoms, and innovative treatments. His intelligence and insight were highly valued by his fellow patient partners and team members.

Even in the face of health challenges, Roger remained highly motivated to do whatever he could to improve the transplant experience for other patients and to help identify better treatment options. Roger’s selfless determination to help others will continue to remind us of the importance of the work we do across Can-SOLVE CKD and beyond.

We are collecting messages below to pass onto Roger’s family, including his brother David who is also a patient partner within the Can-SOLVE CKD family.

Please feel free to share memories and condolences.
