Letter to the editor: Porter lacks a dialysis center

I am writing this as a plea for myself and many other dialysis patients in the surrounding area.

Why can’t we have a dialysis center at Porter?

This would save us from driving or bring transported to Rutland or Burlington three times a week. Right now, six hours of my day are taken up due to four hours of dialysis and two hours travel time. I know I am not alone in this.

Some of us need to be picked up at 5-5:30 a.m. to be there for a 6-6:30 a.m. chair.

Please, we need a dialysis center at Porter.
