He Wanted To Donate His Kidney To A Man Who He Had Never Seen Before. Watch What Happened When He Arrived At The Hospital
Only extremely generous people will accept to donate an organ to a person who really needs it. That is exactly what pastor Tim Jones did. However, his own life was saved in this way too. Read the following text in order to find out more.
By the end of October 2014, Don Herbert attended a sale in a church. He actually did not want to buy anything, but his wife Belinda persuaded him to go. He enjoyed the choir music and met the pastor Tim Jones whom he started a conversation with. They were talking about music and Don expressed his interest in Tom’s preaching. They had also exchanged their phone numbers before they left.
Don has suffered various health issues and after his encounter with Tom his doctor told him that he was supposed to undergo cardiac catheterization and even worse than that, kidney transplantation.
People are usually waiting for transplantation for about 3 or 4 years and that is why Belinda was desperately asking her Facebook friends for help and she posted the following message: “I want my man to live long life. I want to grow old with him by my side!”
Although Tim has recently met Don, he was among the first ones who called Belinda. He told her he would do anything in order to help them. However, he could never imagine what was going on with his health too.
Luckily, Tim was told that his blood type perfectly matched Don’s blood type. This is pretty rare since only one of 20,000 people can have such compatibility. Tim told Belinda the great news and they were being prepared for the surgical intervention. However, on 9th March, 2015 Tim got terrible news.
Doctors have discovered an aneurysm in Tim’s body and if it was not treated on time it could have ruptured and consequently killed him. If he had not done the examinations necessary for determining the compatibility the aneurism would not have been discovered. During the intervention, the surgeons removed the aneurysm and thus saved his life.
Both of them have recovered from the surgical interventions and the only thing they were waiting for was to find out whether the transplanted organ would have been accepted by Don’s body. Fortunately, there were no problems and complications regarding this.
Tim and Don recovered completely and both of them are in good health. This life saving situation connected them deeply.
