Health - General

kidney donation plea signA South Carolina man who carried a sign for a year seeking a kidney for his wife finally got word of an organ match from a woman in Virginia Beach.

Even better news, he also found donors for more than 100 other people using his 'sandwich board' approach, the hospital says.

Jimmie Sue Swilling, 76, will get a new kidney next Wednesday, according to the Medical University of South Carolina.

"I knew it was going to happen because I know him. He wouldn't have stopped until he got me one," said his wife.

GNN has really changed the way I see the world. A few months ago I realized that I was getting really bogged down by all the terror and destruction that hit me first thing in the morning, and throughout my day. Now, with the Good News Network set as my homepage, I see first the good that goes on in the world and my attitude and state of mind are much better.
