(ABC) – A complete stranger gives the gift of a life to a young man in search of a kidney.
Starr Gordy donated her kidney to Daniel Jones, when she was moved by a message posted on the back of Daniel’s mother’s car.
“It just, I can’t really explain it, it just completely moved me and I just, I took a picture of it and I went in Walmart and I was shopping and all I could picture was there is someone in here who has this weight on their shoulders.”
Dozens reached out but Gordy was the only match.
“I don’t think if I didn’t put that message on my vehicle, my son’s angel would not be here today giving him a kidney.”
The two strangers are now bonded forever.
“Knowing that I have her organ in my body, we’re family now. She’s not just a stranger anymore, she’s my aunt.”
