"Life can change so fast," said my father, Vincent Vasta. "In one day I was diagnosed with kidney failure and I lost my job. All in one day." Vasta rests in the living room of his home in Swedesboro, N.J., March 13, 2017. Last year my father began treating the kidney failure with home dialysis, a process that requires him to hook-up to a machine each night to extract the toxins from his blood. The treatment is extremely taxing on his physical, mental, and emotional health. "If I stopped doing the dialysis I'd have two weeks to live."
