Teacher Kidney

You've heard of an apple for the teacher. How about a kidney for the student?

A ten year old boy in the Chicago suburbs who's in need of a new kidney is scheduled to get one next month.

The donor will be his fourth-grade teacher.

Patricia Donohue volunteered to be a potential donor for Brandon Shafer after learning the boy's mother wasn't a close enough match.

Turns out Donohue was a perfect match.

The 25 year old, who once served in the Peace Corps, says she is glad to be donating the organ because her own father, who suffered from leukemia, owes his life to a bone marrow transplant several years ago.
