This is a book about ordinary people, they could be neighbours, friends or colleagues who make light of their condition when we meet them – but whose lives have been changed by kidney failure in one way or another. It is about raising money through book sales for further research into kidney failure but most importantly it is a wonderful compendium of stories written by patients, carers, donors and doctors who provide a glimpse into how this misunderstood and frequently overlooked illness affects them and their families each and every day of their lives.
I finished it this morning. Just wow.
My husband is having peritoneal dialysis every night at home and is currently awaiting a kidney and pancreas transplant and so of course the subject of the book is very close to me. I found it a great help and almost a comfort to read that different people of all ages are coming out the other end.
Kidney disease is a horrible thing and it's terribly sad that it doesn't quite have the same profile in the public domain such as cancer or heart disease and this book really raises awareness. I've urged friends and family to have a read, perhaps that way they can understand a little of what my husband is going through.
Thank you for sharing your story, and others, truly inspirational.
The book would give any new renal failure patient a wealth of information. Even though I worked within the field for 10 years I still learnt from reading the book and would recommend it as a training resource to all staff within the renal world.
It is excellently written. I particularly like the fact that whilst remaining truthfull about the pitfalls of dialysis and transplantation there is always a positive spin on it.
A brilliant read.
