Kidney dialysis patient uses art to help her battle her disease (Shoreline Area News)

Born with only one kidney and diagnosed with kidney disease in her teens, Kathy Bulzomi of Lake City has greeted a lifetime of challenging health issues with a wicked sense of humor.
In the past 33 years, she has repeatedly experienced chronic kidney failure – a life-threatening condition. Bulzomi received a kidney transplant three times, with blood-cleansing dialysis treatments three days a week at Northwest Kidney Centers each time her kidney failed again.
