HER AMAZING DOUBLE GIFT OF LIFE!
Gives man kidney – 16 years after dead hubby did same
AGOOD-HEARTED widow in Florida is keeping her husband’s legacy alive by donating a kidney to the ailing man who received her spouse’s organs 16 years ago!
When roofer Bryan Herrington lost his life in a work accident in 2004 at age 35, his organs saved the lives of four strangers — including Jeff Granger, now 59.
After Jeff received Bryan’s kidney and pancreas, he and his family struck up a friendship with Bryan’s widow, Terri Herrington.
But in April 2019, Jeff learned he was having kidney failure again — and, shortly afterward, Terri offered to give him one of hers!
After testing confirmed she was a healthy match, the delicate procedures were successfully performed at Florida Health Shands Hospital.
Terri hopes their story will inspire others to become donors. “I want people to realize that being an organ donor doesn’t cost you anything,” she says.
Adds Jeff: “You don’t have to be a living donor, but there’s no sense of putting organs in the dirt when you can save someone’s life.”
