Home > News > BC Peritoneal Dialysis Patient to Cycle Across Canada

June 2, 2015 | News

We are in awe of Dale Calibaba, a BC-based peritoneal dialysis patient, who launched his ride across Canada in St. John’s, Newfoundland. Dale was born with Alport Syndrome and his kidneys failed when he was 18 years old. He was on dialysis for one year until he received a kidney transplant and for the next 18 years, his transplant “worked like a charm” according to Dale. In 2005, when his body rejected his kidney transplant, Dale chose home-based automated peritoneal dialysis (APD) which he continues with today. Dale’s driving reason for undertaking this epic journey is to raise awareness of home dialysis, the organ donor registry and empower other people with kidney disease. “I want to touch other lives, let people with kidney disease see the possibilities so they can be empowered.”
We will be talking more about Dale and following his journey over the next few months. Visit our ‘follow dale’ web page and stay tuned for plans to welcome Dale to Winnipeg in July!
