Many people living with kidney disease are not bold enough to share their stories with the rest of the world, which is understandable. It takes a courageous man like Oliver Mondina to help us understand what it is like to live with the disease. Oliver is the perfect definition of a dream chaser. He chases his dreams no matter what.

In this episode of the Fight to Finish Podcast, we have Oliver joining us. Oliver will be sharing with us about GORUCK, his experience in the nursing field, and what it is like to live with kidney disease.
