When Rivers Casino valet Jaime Maldonado noticed the bandages on Tim Brennan’s arm and his worn down appearance, he saw all the signs of a man going through dialysis.
Maldonado, 62, went through it all before when his wife, Julia, spent years on a dialysis machine between her two kidney transplants. Maldonado also knew it was no way to go through life.
