Fort Worth nurse, Danny Kolzow is days away from Kidney failure, so a lifelong friend has stepped up to donate one of his kidneys.
Graham McMillan is donating his Kidney Wednesday morning at Baylor All Saints Medical Center in Fort Worth. This is the same hospital where Kolzow works.
The two were students at Texas Christian University and a became close friends. McMillan, a youth pastor, got tested to see if one of his kidneys would be compatible and it was a match.
McMillan wanted to reveal the good news in a special way, so he arranged with other nurses to tell Kolzow at work. He showed up with a sign that read, “Heard urine need of a kidney. Want mine?”
“Pretty funny, right?” McMillan said. “Let’s do this.”
“My kidney’s going inside that body right there,” McMillan said as the two embraced.
The video, posted on Vimeo, has been viewed more than 800,000 times.
“Just to get the news, something I’ve been waiting for for so long,” Kolzow said. “And it’s incredible news, that I get to not have to worry, I am going to get this lifesaving organ that I need. It’s incredible.”
“I’m getting a transplant literally the week before I would have to start dialysis,” Kolzow said. “It’s just perfect timing.”
