Daughter fights for dialysis care in Prince Rupert

Jaswinder Bains has vowed to do all she can to get a dialysis facility for Prince Rupert in honour of her late mother.

Her mother Jaswant Kaur Kalar was unable to spend the last months of her life in Prince Rupert because she required hemodialysis every other day after her kidneys failed. Bains hopes by sharing her story she can raise awareness about the need of a centre in Prince Rupert so that people needing treatment can remain in the community with their loved ones.
