Fitzgerald, Georgia’s only dialysis clinic closed shop this week, leaving all who receive the life-sustaining treatments to find another facility.
All did, with one exception: Andres Diego.
In 1990, Diego crossed the border from Mexico illegally. He later married an American, but his wife has been unsuccessful at gaining Diego citizenship. With few options and no health insurance, he might die.
Samantha Max, a journalist with The Telegraph of Macon, reported on Andres Diego’s situation. On Thursday, she spoke to WABE’s Jim Burress about Andres’s situation.
