Don Thomas lost both his kidneys to cancer. Though both of them barely know each other, Villarreal recently offered to donate him one of her kidneys.

Villarreal explains that the reason for the donation is her grandmother who recently succumbed to kidney failure.

Dr. Harrison Pollinger, one of the program directors of the Piedmont Transplant Institute, said that both donor and recipient should be able to live healthy lives after the surgery. Villarreal says she hopes their story will inspire others to donate organs to those in need.
