Photography exhibition highlights lives of people with Chronic Kidney Disease
Quanta sponsors private viewing of Survivors: Life Unfiltered to raise awareness of chronic kidney disease
ALCESTER, England, 28 October 2021: Quanta Dialysis Technologies Ltd (“Quanta” or the “Company”, a medical technology company committed to making kidney care more accessible with its SC+ haemodialysis system), is proud to sponsor a new photography exhibition Survivors: Life Unfiltered, running from 26 October to 7 November 2021, at the OXO Gallery in London.
This exhibition was created by award winning photographer Richard Booth and the Company’s patient advocate, Maddy Warren, to raise public awareness about the critical importance of kidney health and to shine a light on the real lives and experiences of those who live with kidney disease, dialysis or a transplant. The exhibition tells the stories of people from all walks of life around the UK, using diptych images to show both sides of what it’s like to exist day to day with a lifelimiting, hidden condition. The inspiring stories cover topics as diverse as facing mortality, mental health, body image, gratitude, survivor’s guilt, silver linings and reconciling with a ‘new normal’.
Quanta recently published a UK Dialysis Patient Experience Survey which highlighted the wide variance in care experienced by UK dialysis patients, as well as challenges faced in accessing self-care and home haemodialysis. Quanta is dedicated to empowering better experiences for dialysis patients and enabling access to the highest-quality shared and self-care therapies, by putting people, including those featured in this exhibition, at the heart of our approach. The full survey can be viewed here.
Quanta is committed to making kidney care more accessible to every patient. Powerful events and exhibitions such as Survivors: Life Unfiltered are instrumental in growing awareness and improving the lives of people living with this life-limiting condition. We are honoured to play a role in this important initiative.
