Editorial Reviews

Review

"A compelling story about coping with a serious illness, offering lessons in the value of slowing down and appreciating life in the moment." -- Kirkus Reviews

From the Author

For those of you who have had kidney failure or know someone who has, or for those of you considering kidney donation, I hope you find my memoir helpful and perhaps a small beacon of light.

Format: Paperback
The complete story -- from rapid loss of kidneys to life on dialysis to receipt of her husband's kidney.
An excellent writer with one novel to her credit, she presents a moving story, complete with the personal context of her life.
It takes an amazing person to travel this challenging route so effectively and to write about it so well.
It is a lesson for us all and a must read for anyone on dialysis or related to someone on dialysis.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This memoir about dialysis provides a well-written, detailed and interesting account of a young woman's experience with kidney failure, dialysis, and the healthcare system in the late 1990's. She was employed in the high tech dotcom economy in the Bay Area while she went through her health crisis, which made for a provocative contrast in the story. The memoir ends with her husband's donation of his kidney to her and a successful transplant. I find it amazing that a kidney transplant can save a person's life and yet leave the donor still completely healthy. What a miracle of both evolution (we have 2 kidneys) and medical technology!

Format: Paperback
Lisa Frieden has written a spectacular book about her dialysis experience. What I enjoy most about Lisa Frieden's writing is her precise and insightful language that provides depth to the sharing of her experience. I feel like I know now exactly what it was like to undergo this transformative experience, and how it changes a person's perspective forever. I recommend this book for anyone facing a health care challenge, or to anyone looking for inspiration. Lisa Frieden is a clearly talented writer, and it will be interesting to see her next project.

Format: Kindle Edition
A well-written, very raw and uncensored account of what life is like before dialysis, losing kidney function and going on dialysis, and receiving a kidney transplant from a loved one. One to add to your reading list.
