Martin Botello


I am hoping to find a kidney donor.

My name is Martin Botello, and I am hoping to find a kidney donor.
Chronic kidney disease is a problem that I have been dealing with for a little over 4 years. Unfortunately, over time my kidney disease has continued to progress to the extent that I will need a kidney transplant. The effects and treatments required to combat it have been a constant stress on my mind, body, and soul.

Since I was diagnosed, I’ve been attending frequent doctor visits and experiencing declining health, while still working to support myself and my family. This often leaves me feeling tired and makes it difficult to do the things I enjoy, like spending time with family and friends, doing photography, and attending dog shows and sledding events with my two Samoyeds and enjoying what life has to offer.

I look forward to the day that I can get my normal life back. It would be a blessing to be able to travel, spend time with my nieces, enjoy nature and life without the constant concerns for my health.

I am on the waiting list for a kidney, however that can often take years to get a match. I am hoping to find a living donor to improve my quality of life. A living donor transplant would be an amazing gift and mean so much to me because it would allow me to resume my life and support my family. I would be grateful if you could help me find a match by getting tested or sharing this information with your own network of friends, family and community.

I sincerely thank you,
Martin Botello
