Good coffee and great food and the arts round out our interests. We should fit right in here in Portland. So happy to be in such a beautiful place,” said Stouffer.

    I bet Val didn’t know that the station that occupies WMAQ-AM’s former 670 AM freq. in Chicago is WSCR a.k.a. 670 The Score where Kerry Sayers, formerly of FSN Northwest(now Root Sports)is a scoreboard update anchor. One of these days, i’d like to see her join ESPN.


    1. Worm

      Kerry Sayers is now on the new Decades Network, which at the present time is not seen in Portland. You PDXers ought to contact one of the local TV stations in the area, wether it’s KATU, KOIN, KGW, KPTV/KPDX or KRCW & tell them to start showing Decades. Maybe KRCW ought to be showing Decades.

    I am very impressed with Val Stouffer as a newscaster and news host. KXL is fortunate to have been able to bring her to Portland.

    What’s Val Stouffer’s opinion on Fox Sportscaster Joe Buck being married to Michelle Bisner, formerly of NFL Network & now of ESPN? BTW, Bisner use to be a Denver Broncos cheerleader.

    Transportation to Dialysis: A life-sustaining challenge

    Did you know that every day nearly 1,500 people receive dialysis treatment in the Portland metro area? These individuals receive several hours of treatment three or more times a week. Getting to and from their treatments can be a huge challenge. Patients face indirect routes and extended wait times (up to two hours of traveling around the city) after the rigors of dialysis treatment. I am writing you to ask if the topic of dialysis transportation and the urgent need for volunteer drivers could be featured on one of your upcoming shows on KXL?

    For dialysis patients, having improvements in transportation will positively impact the quality of care they receive. The noted changes will help to reduce preventable hospitalizations and improve patient health, thus, improving health outcomes. For patients who are unable to drive themselves, having access to transportation provides an important link to critical care. In doing research on the subject of transportation for dialysis patients we have learned:
    • Some patients end treatment early because they’re worried about catching their ride home. Each minute off the machine is detrimental to their health.
    • The number of individuals on dialysis is quickly increasing in this region and across the nation.
    • Over a third of the patients Ride Connection surveyed indicated that they have had issues with transportation in the past 3 months.
    • Most kidney patients are living on low incomes and limited resources.

    For transportation providers, the volume of daily dialysis trips and unexpected difficulties in treatment makes transportation for dialysis treatment one of the more challenging types of trips to serve. As a provider and coordinator of transportation services in the Portland metro region, Ride Connection is working with patients to explore their unique transportation needs and to find better solutions for existing challenges.

    For community members, being educated on this topic, informed about volunteer driving opportunities and choosing to drive dialysis patients could be a life changing experience. Volunteer drivers are to be assigned to drive in the neighborhood of their choice.

    Thank you for your review of this request to get the conversation going about the transportation challenges facing the dialysis patients and how volunteer drivers could, for an hour a week, deliver life-sustaining support to patient’s right in the neighborhood of their choice. During this segment a Ride Connection staff members could speak eloquently about this subject. Patients could share the challenges they face.

    Sincere regards and respect,
