Patient advocate spotlight: bill

Before being diagnosed with chronic kidney disease, Murray worked as a self-employed plumber. Initially told he would only have five years until he would need to start dialysis, Murray made it to 16. But once he began his six-days-a-week dialysis treatment, he quickly lost his strength, struggled to keep working and had to close his business.
