About Gary

According to the National Kidney Foundation, currently in the United States there are more than 100,000 people waiting for kidney transplants. One of those individuals is Miami’s own, Gary Kleiman.

Gary has spent nearly 50 years helping children diagnosed with diabetes. He has served as a lifeline and vital source of counseling and comfort to them and their families as a diabetes camp counselor and throughout his career as Executive Director of Medical Development at the Diabetes Research Institute in Miami. Now Gary is the one who needs OUR help!
Gary’s loved ones are sharing this urgent, but hopeful message to find a compatible kidney donor. “As we all would come to find out, Gary’s family would be relentless in their pursuit of making life better for him and the millions suffering from type 1 diabetes, like my own nephew. I’ve witnessed firsthand Gary’s strength and tenacity during the most challenging times in his life and right now he’s facing another – needing a kidney transplant to save his life, says Andy Garcia.”
It is a safe and simple procedure for the donor with absolutely zero financial cost to them. Gary’s one working kidney is currently failing. His sons went through the screening process but unfortunately, they were not medically eligible to be his donor.
Gary lives in Boca Raton, Florida and grew up on Miami Beach. He went to Beach High and attended Syracuse University. Gary is a die-hard Miami Heat, and Miami Dolphins fan.
