My Story – William Mahaney

William Mahaney lives in Williamsville, NY. He has Blood Type A. You can contact William by using the form below.


I’m Western NY born and raised. I worked for 23 years at Benderson Development Company in marketing and graphic design since graduating college from RIT. While at Benderson I met my beautiful wife Deborah who I’ve been married to for happy 21 years.

My one daughter Mikaela is 18 years old and attending SUNY Fredonia. My kidneys started to deteriorate about 9 years ago. That is when I received a double lung transplant due to Cystic Fibrosis. Today my lungs are going strong but my kidneys have taken the hit. Because of the powerful anti-rejection mediations I am now on, my kidneys are definitely NOT in good shape.

I will need dialysis soon or a kidney transplant and that is where you come in.

I’m looking for that one person who will say to themselves, “Yes, I will help this man live a better life”, Are you that person?

I was given the gift of life once and I am hoping to continue to be a part of my family’s life with a kidney donation.

Thank you for reading my short story. Please contact me at
