Jorge Caraveo Gamboa is 29 years young and has lived with kidney disease since he was 2. At the age of three he was diagnosed with Hemolytic uremic syndrome, which caused his kidneys to fail. He has had 2 transplants, and is on the waiting list for a third transplant.
Jorge is an inspiration to many of his peers at RSN’s local support group for people with kidney disease. While growing up with kidney disease he learned a lot about how to manage his health and even his overall mood while on dialysis. He shares with Lori how he has learned how to communicate with care providers and co-manage his treatment alongside his doctor.
