I didn’t know who Tom Martinez was until this weekend. Maybe if I were a Patriots fan I would have, as he is Tom Brady’s mentor, but as we all know, I’m not a Patriots fan, but I have become a fan of Tom Martinez. In addition to Tom Brady, Tom has also worked with John Elway and JaMarcus Russell and has been a respected and award winning coach at the College of San Mateo in California.
Tom is in dire need of a kidney transplant and the organization MatchingDonors.com is in the process of trying to find him a donor to save his life.
You may have seen the special CBS Sports did on Tom’s life, “The Tom Behind Tom Brady” which originally aired on Thanksgiving, that’s how I learned about him. If you haven’t, take a moment to watch it.
If you or someone you know is interested in finding out if you could be match for Tom, please visit MatchingDonors.com
