Dale Calibaba Gets Kidney Transplant
We are happy to bring you some great news today. You may remember our friend Dale Calibaba who biked over 6,500 kilometres across Canada last summer while completing peritoneal dialysis treatments during rest stops.
Dale had nearly completed his journey from east to west coast last fall but fell ill with a catheter infection and had to shift to hemodialysis to heal. He vowed to finish his trip across Canada in summer of 2016. Dale got a call earlier this month and received a KIDNEY TRANSPLANT.
Dale’s support team sent this update: “The surgery went extremely well and Dale is now in recovery for a few weeks in Vancouver. He is thrilled that he received a transplant of course, but he is determined to finish this last 600 km or he feels it will haunt him.”
We wish Dale all the best in his recovery and hope to hear more when he completes his cycling journey. You can send well wishes through his website believeinthepossibility.org.
