My dear friend Robert Leibowitz is in desperate need of a kidney. I have known Robert for many years. Over the last 20 years we have worked together in the advertising sales business. Robert is the type of guy that would give you the shirt off his back. He is always quick with a joke and loves to make people laugh. He is a selfless human being who lives for his kids. He has 4 boys and 1 girl. He is devoted to their well being. When he was recently told he needed to go on dialysis his only concern was for his children. His He is in end phase renal failure

He is investigating all legitimate possibilities to expedite receiving a kidney.  His resources and his insurance are limited. He is young man and all he hopes is that he can get back to being the active dad and doing the best for his children. Any way that you can help would be much appreciated (e.g, donating, being a live donor, know of a live donor, or simply sharing this page).

Thank you.

Good afternoon-

Great news. My friend Robert Leibowitz has found a live kidney donor. He is a selfless and amazing individual from Indiana, his name is Richie Sully. The transplant will take place on January 18. This is a wonderful human story of one person helping another, giving the gift of life. This is a truly wonderful Christmas story. Richie and Robert will appear on HLN-CNN at 1:30pm today.

Good afternoon-

I wanted to give you an update on my friend Robert Leibowitz's search for a kidney. Since I last posted a few months back Robert's situation has worsened and he needs a kidney more than ever. Taking matters into his own hands, Robert visited Disney World this past summer with his children and wore a Shirt that expressed his need. The shirt received overwhelming media attention and now Robert has many potential donors that could possibly help. I have been contacted by friends of Robert who would like to help so I've decided to continue the Go Fund Me campaign. Robert's medical costs have started to pile up. Additionally he needs help paying for expenses for any potential donors that want to come to New York. So any help you can give him would be much appreciated.

I sent a message to his facebook, but am not a "friend" so I'm not sure if he will receive it. I would like to help if I can.

I just saw your story on News Channel 2 and it lifted me up! I am thrilled for you and your family that you found a donor. I am happy to donate towards the expenses of Richie Sully as he makes the trip to NY to donate his kidney. My prayers to you both for successful surgeries and speedy recoveries! XOXO
