Meet Sam

Sam was a 19-year-old college soccer star when he was diagnosed with kidney failure and told he needed dialysis. At the time, he felt he’d lost all control. Several years later, a nurse suggested home hemodialysis—and Sam went for it. He shares how empowered he became, how he got back to a lifestyle he loves and how he became a transplant recipient after years of home dialysis.
