ReMend Mentor Testimonials
This is a much needed Program
“It has definitely been an experience. I’ve not only Mentored but have also learned the experiences of other dialysis patients and how different each patient’s journey has been. They learn from me but I also learn from them!
Being a Mentor in ReMend has helped me to better myself with the training and assistance from the ReMend staff. Recently, I was asked to represent patients in my clinic by attending their clinic committee meetings.
I’m grateful to REMEND for giving me an opportunity to reach out and mentor other dialysis patients. This is a much needed Program. I started dialysis 22 yrs. ago and I wish REMEND was available back then."
Thank you to all who participate and lead in REMEND.”
– Gracie C., ReMend Mentor
Paying it forward
As part of the beginnings of ReMend, my friend and Mentor; Dennis Bourque’s conviction and passion for paying it forward with respect to helping others with serious kidney diseases was a no-brainer for me.
Fortunate to have two very good friends willing to sacrifice one of their kidneys is a blessing and being a member of ReMend has allowed me to help others to provide needed answers and direction in handling their kidney disease. Being a member of ReMend has been a true blessing in my life.
