    NEW LENOX, Ill. -- You've heard of an apple for the teacher. How about a kidney for the student?



    A 10-year-old boy in the Chicago suburbs who's in need of a new kidney is scheduled to get one next month. The donor will be his fourth-grade teacher.



    Patricia Donohue volunteered to be a potential donor for Brandon Shafer after learning the boy's mother wasn't a close enough match.



    It turned out Donohue was a perfect match.



    The 25-year-old, who once served in the Peace Corps, said she is glad to be donating the organ because her own father, who suffered from leukemia, owes his life to a bone marrow transplant several years ago.

    Very nice story, and good to read good news!

    Im looking around for threads on the 16 yr old Kentucky boy who's dad was let out of jail to give his son a kidney and bailed town with his girlfriend.
    It was on "Americas Most Wanted" a few weeks ago- wonder if they ever caught the scum bag dad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?

    The next weekend John W. did update that several viewers wanted to be tissue and blood test match to see if they could donate a kidney to the boy!:clap:

    He has diaylsis at the same hospital i had a 4 day visit in last month-Nortons in Louisville,- the diaylsis dept. is in the nortons department of the "grown up " hospital , the childrens hopsital "Kosair" is adjoining to.
