Fulfilling the sweetest dream – despite being on dialysis: Life is full of challenges, but also possibilities. My name is Ramunė Budrikienė and I am a business woman, and I am a fighter.
Mother of six gave birth to last born twins while on dialysis: Being a mother of six children, is that special? In my situation maybe it is, and maybe a little more than usual. My name is Melinda and I delivered my newly born twins being a dialysis patient.
Thirty years on dialysis: A transplant, not working out the way I wanted, still became the breakthrough moment in my life. My name is Wojciech Rosanowski and I have decided to live my life to the fullest.
This is very, very good. I am being very well looked after. It is actually much better here in Torremolinos than back home in England. The nurses check on you all the time and there is always a medical doctor present. Besides, the coffee here is fantastic! From the place where I stay to the clinic it is 15-20 minutes by car. It is really convenient. I don’t have to worry about the payment, the E111-form [European Health Insurance Card] takes care of that.
The Clinic is right at the door of the hotel. I normally take a taxi for my sessions and it takes 3-4 minutes to get there. Once there was a national strike and no taxis were to be found, so I actually chose to walk back to the hotel after the dialysis, that’s how close it is. I do not experience any language barrier. The doctors and Paulina [the Holiday Dialysis coordinator in Malaga] all speak English. Everybody is very nice, friendly and helpful. I am really in favour of Spain, not least since there are one or two doctors present at all times. I would like to give thanks for all the help I received while on dialysis.
