CHICKASHA -- Her love for her brother and others fighting life-threatening health situations led a young Chickasha woman to donate a kidney to a former Oklahoman.

The Chickasha Express-Star reports that Mary Wilkinson saw her brother, Mark, lose his battle with cancer.

Meanwhile, former Yukon resident Mark Lindsay suffered with an illness that threatened his life and saw his chances take a hit when a cousin who wanted to donate a kidney to him died.

The Chickasha woman and the California man met through a network for those in need of transplant and struck up a friendship and a bond.

Recently, after extensive testing, it was determined they matched and a kidney transplant from her to him was scheduled.

Read how the surgery went and how much it meant to both of them and their families.
