Digital Daily: Stranger donates kidney to man after seeing sign car asking for help

National News

(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.”
