Video: Beggar has money, seeks kidney

BEAVERTON, Ore. – A man begging along the side of a road in Beaverton isn't asking for spare change.

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 said his insurance will cover all medical costs.
