Janet Roper ,

Important info for everyone

The Journey Continues has been interesting for me as I knew very little about kidney disease and its causes before listening. The episodes are informative, encouraging, touching and even entertaining. I highly recommend sharing this podcast with anyone who may benefit from learning more about this topic.
