Author Liz McCue says that writing this book has been a dream come true for her: “I aspired to be a writer of sorts from a young age and I am grateful to the many people who helped me in whatever way they could: The Sisters of Cluny in Chapelizod, Dublin for their encouragement when I was very young, Brenda and all the staff at the Renal Dialysis Unit at University Hospital Waterford, the team at Waterford Healing Arts Trust and especially artist Philip Cullen, who pushed and cajoled me every step of the way. Through this process, I have come to love and respect the feisty, confident, determined renal warrior that is now the new Lizzy bits”.
