In 2008, Dustin Pena's right kidney failed––and it had to be removed. The pain could have been searing and the recovery brutal, but it wasn't. His doctor made it bearable. Because of this experience, Dustin decided to spend his life paying it forward as a licensed massage therapist and a medical assistant with a concentration in pain management.
