GOOD NEWS Woman to Donate Kidney to Complete Stranger: 'God is Good, He Is in This'
A Georgia man has spent months trying to find a match for a kidney donation, and now his prayers have been answered, thanks to a kindhearted stranger.
51-year-old Oscar David Serrano told Fox 5 that he hasn't been able to work as a Delta flight attendant since his kidney disease diagnosis in 2014.
He explained that he has to spend hours hooked up to a dialysis machine every single day.
"My life becomes my disease. I hook up to this machine and spend 11 hours connected to it while it removes all the toxins from my body. It's 25 feet long, so I can't go far," Serrano said.
He has struggled to find some who is a match and is willing to donate a kidney, placing hundreds of posters at shopping centers, coffee shops and even on his car.
"I've had a lot of strangers who tried, but it just didn't work out for any number of reasons. The criteria is tough and it's really hard to pass," Serrano said.
Now, Serrano is feeling overjoyed, and he's ready to resume his career as a flight attendant.
Kimberly Bachmeyer Rynders, a Minnesota woman who he had never met before, has stepped forward and agreed to donate one of her kidneys.
"[He] is the kindest soul you will ever meet. I'm honored to be a tiny part of giving him his life back," she wrote on Facebook. "Yes, God is good. He is in this and I'm confident of a beautiful ending to David's story."
The transplant surgery is scheduled for December 28 at Piedmont Atlanta Hospital.
