A couple months ago I was approached during the opening of a sushi restaurant by a lady and she asked if I could do something to raise awareness about local dialysis patents. My editor thought it was a great idea so he put it all in my hands. It will be a 12 photo layout with an 8" copy block. I'll hold the rest of the images for when it runs. That way you guys can read the short story too. I've done several short copy blocks in the past, but this is the longest(though still pretty short) and the most involved one I've done. I'm very proud of it. Here is the lead shot for the essay. This lady had an amazing story. She was diagnosed with diabetes at 12 and has been on dialysis for more than 6 years. She's had five strokes, one of which while sitting in the chair in the photo. Gave me one of the most powerful quotes of the story: C&C welcome as always.
