Even after losing 30 pounds, Josephine Fox still felt exhausted. The 55-year-old Hanover Township resident and grandmother of three returned to her doctor, desperate for answers. Further testing revealed she was in full-blown renal failure. “How could this happen to me? There were no symptoms,” she said. After spending 14 days in the hospital on dialysis, Josephine tapped her inner strength and made a decision. “I didn’t care what I had to do, I was getting off the dialysis machine.” After following her doctor’s orders - including changing her eating habits - Josephine’s fight ended after three months. Finally, she was dialysis free. In addition to her strong will, Josephine credits her success to her Geisinger team of physicians, nurses and staff. “They worked fast to find the problem and to treat me effectively. Had there been any delays, the results could have been devastating.” #GeisingerStories
