I'm helping Sheila Shaw promote her personal website. She's a former peritoneal dialysis patient, and kidney transplant recipient. Her treatment for PD inspired her to invent the "Peritoneal Dialysis Security Band," which replaced using tape to secure her catheter. It's easier to use than existing belts, as there is no need to connect two ends together!<
>Sheila also has not let PD, or her later kidney transplant, get her down. She's an inventor, an entrepreneur, a builder, and also a motorcyclist. There are awesome pictures and video of Sheila riding her motorcyle on her personal website: <

"Like me, you unfortunate enough to stumble upon a silent war. The trouble is that once you see it, you can't unsee it. And once you've seen it, keeping quiet, saying nothing,becomes as political an act as speaking out. Either way, you're accountable."
