Facebook Kidney Donor

A Detroit-area woman's posting on the social networking website Facebook led to doctors finding a kidney donor for her husband.
Beaumont Hospital says 35-year-old Jeff Kurze of Warren received a kidney from 25-year-old Ricky Cisco of Royal Oak in a transplant operation at the Royal Oak hospital on March 30.
The match was found after Roxy Kurze made the post. Jeff Kurze says it was "hard to breathe" after learning that Cisco was willing to donate the kidney. Jeff Kurze says that since connecting with Cisco they've become good friends and now spend time together regularly.
Cisco says donating the kidney was a way he could help someone else.

    Good for them. I donated a kidney for the same reason. It feels good to know that you can help someone with the gift of life.
