Hi, my name is Chetan. I was diagnosed with renal failure in 2004 during a routine visit to hospital following a very debilitating stroke I had in 2003.
I began Haemodialysis in April 2013. Being on dialysis had its ups and downs. With any new routine, you have to learn to adapt and make the most of the situation. I made some good friends with fellow patients and we continue to keep in touch.
Around that time, I became a member of the WLKPA. Being a designer, I have applied my skills in the recent rebrand we have undergone with the new logo, leaflets, posters (and this website). You will also see me volunteering throughout the year for the KPA. Feel free to stop and have a chat if you see me around.
I was blessed with receiving a non-directed altruistic kidney donation in 2015 for which I am truly grateful. My new kidney has settled in well and I feel great.
