GOOD NEWS Dad Finds Kidney Donor for Sick Daughter Through Mass Text Message
A 10-year-old Connecticut girl could have a new chance at life and it all started with a mass text message!
Last year, Dan Hall's daughter, Samantha, was diagnosed with pancreatitis and then found to have kidney disease, according to a report from FOX CT. Needing a kidney transplant, Samantha was placed on a donor list while her dad searched the state for a match.
Hall said he went to other towns and handed out thousands of fliers. For good measure, he sent out a text message to everyone in his phone.
A former next-door neighbor got the message a few days before Christmas, and decided he'd take the test to see if he had a matching kidney. It turns out he is a match, and the transplant is scheduled for early next month.
“For me it was saving a life. It’s not every day you get asked to save someone’s life,” said Raymond Fracasso, who added that he's excited to help Samantha.
