With great sorrow ARxC announces the passing of another ARxC Dialysis family member, Maria Estella Lopez (April 12, 1964 - August 31, 2014).
Maria was one of our original Grady Dialysis Patients. Although she received routine dialysis treatment, Maria suffered greatly for the past 5 years and especially the past 2 years being hospitalized most of the time. She endured her blindness, strokes and respiratory illnesses along with her kidney failure bravely and always by her side was her devoted husband, Gilberto.
