Beyond dialysis

October 13, 2009

Carl Harbaugh, former sheriff of Frederick County, Md., speaks to an audience of dialysis patients and their families from the region at a Beyond Dialysis luncheon Oct. 4 in the Ballroom at Duffy's on Potomac.

Harbaugh was first diagnosed with kidney failure, pneumonia and heart problems in 2003. He underwent dialysis at the DaVita Dialysis Center in Frederick and eventually received a kidney transplant in 2008.

He told his story to the more than 100 guests at Beyond Dialysis and encouraged them to find ways to enjoy a full life even while undergoing dialysis three times a week for four hours each time.
