It was a match made in surgery.
A complete stranger, proved to be the perfect match for an Illinois woman — he donated part of his liver for a transplant, and they stole each other’s hearts.
Heather Krueger had stage 4 liver disease and her doctors told her she only had a couple months to live unless she could find a living donor.
Chris Dempsey overheard Heather’s cousin talking about the situation at his office, and offered to be tested to see if his liver was suitable for a transplant.
It turns out he was a perfect match – in more ways than one.
Doctors transplanted 55% of Chris’s liver in March, and the two spent a week recovering in the same ICU.
But, later, they wanted to spend more time together and last month, Chris asked Heather to spend the rest of her life – which can now be a long, healthy one– as his wife.
