Director Skinner, will be joined on air by two patients featured in his upcoming documentary "Dialysis Diaries".
Bill inherited polycystic kidney disease from his father, and has a 50-percent chance of passing this genetic fate to one of his daughters. His situation inspired him to become a spokesperson for PKD awareness, going so far as to dress up as “Kenny the Kidney” at the Walk for PKD each spring.
A year after he was declared ‘GQ Man of the Year’ for his work against gender violence, Jimmie suffered a heart attack and renal failure. Only in his early 40s, this sad twist of fate has forced him to live with constant uncertainty. We follow Jimmie as he struggles through painful dialysis treatments, searches desperately for an organ donor, and fights to get his transplant covered by Medicare.
