Man Donates a Kidney and It Saves His Life
Tim Jones is a pastor in Kannapolis, North Carolina, last fall, he met a guy named Don Herbert who had stage-five kidney disease, and needed a transplant. Three days later, Tim decided to donate one of his kidneys, he says he just felt a calling to do it.
It's a good thing he did, because it ended up saving HIS life too.
The surgery happened last Monday. While doctors were removing his kidney they found an aneurysm in one of his arteries that was close to bursting. His surgery took twice as long because of it, but he pulled through. Doctors say that if he hadn't donated the kidney, they wouldn't have found the aneurysm, and it could have killed him.
Don's surgery went well too, and they'll both need about six to eight weeks to recover. You can make a donation on their GoFundMe:
