Man Finds Kidney on Facebook

Share Light #8 is a Man Finding a Kidney on Facebook.

Jeff Kurze found out his kidneys were failing and in desperation his wife turned to Facebook to find an organ donor for her husband.  One of her nominal acquaintances on Facebook, Comedian Ricky Cisco, read about the situation and volunteered to donate his kidney.   Surgery took place on March 30, 2011 in Detroit, Michigan.

The following are online news articles on this situation.
The rest as they say is history.  A young man has a kidney and new lease on life thanks to the bringing together of people through social media.

Share Light raises awareness of sharing you can believe in.
