Earl Martinez is holding a sign that reads, "Need Kidney Donor."
The 28-year-old told KOIN ( http://bit.ly/WT53gE) he was born with a genetic kidney disease that rules out family members as donors. He has been on dialysis for 18 months and been waiting more than a year for a transplant.
Martinez says his insurance will cover all medical costs.
