The Story of Clark Patterson
“I was a diabetic for 45 years and developed
kidney failure. I was on dialysis for almost four years. The doctors would not
give me a kidney without a pancreas due to my diabetes. I was on the transplant
list for five years. By God’s grace, a donor of a kidney and pancreas became
available that was a match for me.”
“That has been a year and a half ago and everything is going great for me. I have never had a life as an adult without insulin. I am no longer held back by diabetes or dialysis. This year I will not only be helping at the Southern Delaware Kidney Walk, I will be able to walk in it for the first time! I want to thank the Rehoboth Beach Fresenius Dialysis Unit. They took great care of me while I was on dialysis. I owe them a lot for keeping me going until my transplant. I now have a new lease on life with my children and my grandchildren. My wife and I are able to take trips now in a way that we never could before.”
