DaVita Patient Commemorates 20 Years on Dialysis

When DaVita patient Paul Hardy first started dialysis, he – like most patients – was scared and wasn’t sure what the future held. But now, 20 years later, he knows that while it hasn’t always been easy, it has been filled with compassion.

The below photos show Paul’s 20-Years-on-Dialysis surprise celebration at his DaVita clinic in Alliance, OH. He was surrounded by his siblings and DaVita caretakers, and he said it’s hard to even put into words how much it meant to him.

“I was absolutely surprised. It was really beautiful,” Paul said. “It made my whole year.”

“The staff here is absolutely wonderful. I like the way they care about you, make sure you get all you need – they’re just overall the best people you could have care for you. I truly look forward to coming in.”
