The number of people with kidney disease has increased dramatically. Curaçao has the third highest number of dialysis patients in the world. This is a very worrisome situation which instigated the writing of this book; a compilation of some short dramatic stories about people who are suddenly in need of dialysis. Their reaction; disbelief, shock ... 'Me...Dialysis...NO way!' The purpose of this book is to stimulate awareness concerning the readers health by gaining knowledge about kidney disease and dialysis, hopefully opening doors to living a life as healthy as possible. A life without unpleasant surprises.
