    Saw a mention by Mike Silver on twitter last evening that Tom Martinez was ailing. Apparently he has since announced on facebook that he has a month to live due to complications of diabetes...

    I know this comment is going to generate some controversy but here goes:

    There is a black market for donated organs for $, especially in Japan where the rich have gotten organs from Chinese executed prisoners.

    I think Brady should give some $ to Martinez so he can fly over there and do whatever it takes to get the heart/kidney transplant he needs.

    Martinez sounds like a good man. He is certainly responsible for a large part
    of Tom's success.

    Sorry about the repost. I did a quick glance and didn't see it on the front page.

    Mods, please merge.

    Wherever do we get some of you from...

    Mods, could we again merge this all with Ian's more detailed thread that includes some incredible quotes from Tom about his hope that those whose lives he touched will pass on to others some of the life lessons he taught them. As well as a quote from Tom Sr. on what he meant to the entire Brady family.

    Martinez has coached him privately since he was 15. Also coached his sisters in softball. Peter King just tweeted that he has talked to a "very emotional" Tom Brady who is really struggling with Martinez illness. He will have more on the situation in MMQB.
