Charissa Rice 
Current hemodialysis patient and NxStage user
Field Marketing Specialist, NxStage

Charissa was diagnosed with both kidney failure and congestive heart failure as a result of systemic lupus. Initially, she began three-times-weekly in-center hemodialysis. Her nurse encouraged her to try more frequent home hemodialysis. Charissa noticed significant changes after starting more frequent treatments including: increased energy levels, quicker recovery time after treatment, and better blood pressure control with fewer medications. She joined NxStage as a Field Marketing Specialist in 2012 to educate patients and family members about the benefits of more frequent home hemodialysis.
