Free gifts are always nice... There are many great forums out there including Home Dialysis Central, This one of course and Davita's.  Its always nice to see the forum giving back.
I know that if you join NxstageUsers.com/forum They are also or at least were giving out a lapel pin which is very nice looking.   :cheer:
