    My sister was just started on HD and is to be trauned for HHD. We have a cruisetour to Alaska scheduled for the beginning of June. A Hd nirse said she has heard of dialysis machines being delivered to the cruise ship for use on board. She couuld not remember the name of the company. Does your company provide this service since you have centers in Alaska?
    We are doing a 7night cruise, then 5 night inland package. Once the cruise is over, she can receive treatment in centers in Anchorage and Fairbanks, and not be off schedule. The problem is that during the cruise, only Juneau has a dialysis center- this would mean she would have to go from Wed to Tues withoyut a treatment.
    Any suggestions you could offer would be greatly appreciated.

    My husband and I are new to Home Dialysis and hope to travel–we would love to hear from others who have traveled with the Cycler on airlines and also about traveling by car (providing we have a car large enough for dialysate bags plus the cycler, and of course, all of my clothes!!). Tips, problems, advise–all would be welcomed! Thanks
