What is the consequence of the kidney shortage?

It is a catastrophe.  We conservatively estimate that each year 43,000 patients suffer on dialysis and die prematurely because of the shortage.  That’s equivalent to 85 fully loaded 747s crashing each year.  That’s 118 patients dying each day.  Since 1988 (when data collection began) almost 1 million patients have suffered and died prematurely because of the shortage.

Our guest is: Shanice Figeroux

I’d like to share my story with the world in hopes of educating other patients so that they could possibly take hold of their own lives more.  We have more control over this life than we think of we if we just applied the proper logic . Patients teaching patients. Teaching is my objective. Since age 13 I’ve been on dialysis. I’ve had two kidney transplants and two nephrectomy’s before age 21 and yet ….still I rise.

COMFORT IMPROVES COPING I BELIEVE . No one wants to fight being uncomfortable. We want to be comfortable during this battle so I’ve created a simple product to help change the way people receive INTRAVENOUS TREATMENT SO THEY CAN SURVIVE MORE COMFORTABLY …ITS CALLED THE ARM COZY. HERE’S A LINK:

Dialysis Advocates is grateful for the opportunity to get this important message out for all Dialysis Patients.

We will be having a guest on the first part of every show. Then we will open the Microphones for the Town Hall. Patients and others will be able to discuss concerns and solutions. It will be a patient group, including families.

We also realize that many patients need to be supported and being heard is important for all patients in a safe venue.
