Story Summary

Right now, thousands of Americans are waiting for a kidney transplant. About one third of those donated kidneys will come from a living donor – typically a family member or friend of the recipient. However, that's not always the case.

When a high school English teacher decided to donate his kidney to a stranger, he never imagined it would help someone living in his own community.
