The Most Precious Gift From a Friend to Another Friend: Kidney

The Most Precious Gift From a Friend to Another Friend: Kidney

Its hard to find a kidney these days. And therefore you feel really blessed if a donor comes your way and say “here is one of my organs for you”. A similar incident happened with Terri Teas, who is an Anchorage woman and required a kidney for the transplant.

One day, she received great news from a distant friend saying that she want to donate one of her own kidneys to her. She underwent all the matching procedures and is a suitable match for her.

Following this news, October 8 was the date decided to carry a transplant surgery for both the friends at the Swedish Medical Center in Seattle, Washington.

Its been more than 10 years now that Teas's kidneys were worsening. As told by her to ABC News “her kidneys were malfunctioning". With her growing age, she was becoming weaker and weaker over the years, and this was something that forced her to quit the job of a medical nurse prematurely.

It was last year, when Teas met one of her old friends, Judie Wolfe, on her visit to Providence Alaska Medical Center in Anchorage. During that meet, the lady in her early 60s shared with her friend that she is looking out for a possible match for her own kidney transplant.

Now Teas and Wolfe both are doing well and recovering.
