Cruel Carousel: The Grim Grind of “Compassionate” Dialysis

I’m grateful to the AMA Journal of Ethics for giving me a platform to tell the story of ‘Silvio,’ an undocumented immigrant living with kidney failure. You can read the journal article here or follow the gallery below to see the story page by page. While I can’t change what happened to ‘Silvio,’ I hope that with time and advocacy, tragic stories like these can change the way that we care for undocumented patients in need of dialysis.
