Meet Chris

While Chris’ diagnosis came out of the blue, it didn’t stop her from finding a way to live life on her terms. Chris opted for at-home peritoneal dialysis (PD) to fit her outdoorsy Sedona lifestyle. Choosing PD not only made travel possible for Chris, it allowed her to take a dream 5,500-mile camping trip across the U.S.
