Quote of the Day: "Having hope is what ends your fear that`s in your heart. Hope is something we all have within us when times get tough and rough."
Many Chronic Kidney Disease Patients (CKD) who receive or may at any point in time need to receive hemodialysis through a fistula, must protect the veins in their arm.
