Walter A. Hunt (ACWORTH, GA) holds a doctorate in neuropharmacology from West Virginia University. As a medical researcher with the National Institutes of Health, he examined the biological basis of diseases, never considering that one day he would be dealing with a serious disease of his own. Now free of kidney problems, he is the author of Writing My Name in the Snow: How I Adapted to Kidney Failure, Found My Inner Strength, and Began Life Anew.
