Kidney Dialysis Veterans

I was introduced to Gregory while shooting for DaVita. He has been on dialysis for ten years. Imagine having treatment every third day for that long of a time. It’s a routine that becomes his life. Yet he still carries on with an uplifting spirit. All of the patients I met have come to terms with their treatment. Most of them are waiting for a proper match from a kidney donor. To have such patience while in treatment takes a personal fortitude that must be admired.

Sun in his face, looking into the future.

Sun on his back, looking into his past. More dialysis veterans.
