Sam Kissel (pictured right) donated his kidney to Kory.

“My wife, Janelle, and I were having dinner with our friend Jessica and her new boyfriend, Kory, when he mentioned he had polycystic kidney disease.”

Full of benign cysts, each kidney was a 20-pound football that couldn’t filter his blood normally and eventually would fail. (A healthy kidney is the size of a person’s fist and weighs half a pound.)
