Montgomery Man in Search of Kidney Donor


More than 115,000 people in the United States are waiting for a life-saving transplant, and nearly 4,000 live in New Jersey, according to the NJ Sharing Network.

Marty Sliwicki, a 17-year Montgomery resident, a cyclist, and computer guru who works in cyber security at AT&T, lives in the Montgomery Hills section of town. He needs a kidney.

Marty Sliwicki, 57, with his beautiful niece Skylar Demichele, 9. 

During a routine physical checkup in 2015, Sliwicki says his doctor noticed his blood test results showed his creatinine numbers were declining.

The doctor sent him to see a nephrologist, who sent him for a biopsy at Robert Wood Johnson Hospital, where Sliwicki learned the bad news that he has a rare kidney disorder. 

“My doctor says if I wasn’t so active, my kidneys would have failed long ago. So it is extra incentive for me to keep in shape now,” Sliwicki shared during a phone conversation in January. “My hope is to find a living donor who can help me.”

His blood type is A-.

Sliwicki has been on a waiting list for two years. He works out regularly at the Princeton Fitness and Wellness Center, and says he is not on dialysis yet. 

Anyone interested in being tested as a potential donor may learn more at The Weill Cornell Medicine and New York-Presbyterian Kidney & Pancreas Transplant Program website: (weillcornell.org/kidney-and-pancreas-transplantation).

Living donor kidney transplantation is the best option for patients who need a kidney transplant. Living donor kidneys function more quickly and more efficiently, and survive longer than deceased donor organs. However, we know that becoming a living donor is a big decision that requires careful consideration. ■
