For me this piece of technology is what connects me to the future. It is a dialysis machine which helps us people with kidney problems to prolong our lives so that we can still be with our families and friends. It gives us more time to enjoy and experience life. But it hurts me to see that it also affects my family because of the financial burden that comes with it. I even know some patients that could not pay for the treatment at all. I hope that with all the advancement in technology this machine will improve in terms of its medical effects and be more available and affordable for people like us. No one should suffer or worse die because they can't afford the treatment. I pray that someday every patient can be treated without having to worry about their medical bills. That is my ideal future.
