Kidney Transplant Patient Marries His Donor

www.indystar.com Published: October 25, 2013

Kyle Froelich had heard it before — nearly 100 times from well-meaning friends and family in kind gestures that ultimately never panned out, according to IndyStar.com.



The site reports his diseased kidneys were slowly failing him. One after another, people offered to donate one of theirs. But those good intentions — always foiled, never the right match — no longer raised his hopes.

Chelsea Clair, then 22, had never met Kyle Froelich, then 19. But she had heard his story through a family friend and had already volunteered to help raise awareness for his cause. On that very first day they met, without really knowing why or what it would mean, she said to him: “I’m going to give you my kidney.”
