Tim's walk to a new kidney

In May 2008 Tim was diagnosed with Hereditary Papillary Renal Cell Carcinoma. He had both kidneys removed at Mayo Clinic in July of 2008. His journey with dialysis began, now after almost six year of assisted dialysis in center, Tim decided to be trained to administer his own dialysis. Last week he successfully completed the four week Home Hemo Training program in Green Bay. He is now giving himself dialysis treatment five days a week, each treatment lasts 4-5 hours in full.
