16-Year-Old Ecuadorian Boy in Dire Need of Dialysis Treatments Thanks One of Nation's Leading Providers for Saving His Life
Date:12/13/2007

urs and days passed, he continued receiving the needed dialysis treatments, and his prognosis quickly improved. Now, Juan tells me in his native Spanish, 'Thank you for saving my life' -- hearing those words made me realize the true meaning of our mission."

To facilitate employee (teammate) participation, DaVita covers each teammate's job duties/responsibilities while they travel abroad, and expenses are paid in full by the company, with contributions made by executives, vendors and private donations.

"Bridge of Life-DaVita Medical Missions brings lasting change by opening access to dialysis care and chronic kidney disease (CKD) education to countries where it's needed most," said Kent Thiry, DaVita chairman and CEO. "This program gives us an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of those we're privileged to touch."

Juan Carlos and his family continue to do well. He had a fistula placed in May and has become a great student of his diet. He is also back in school and hopes to someday become a doctor so that he can help those in need.

In thinking of Juan Carlos and the Bridge of Life program, Bradley adds, "Life just had a way of getting through. It was quite a team effort. And I'm willing to go again -- anytime I'm needed."
