In 2013, Tracy Spraggins desperately needed a kidney transplant. She has been battling Lupus since she was six and it finally destroyed her kidney function. Knowing that time was running out, her husband PJ Spraggins was tested to find out if he was a match to donate a kidney to her.

It was rare and lucky that PJ was a perfect match to give Tracy a kidney but doctors told him his blood pressure was too high. He had to diet and exercise for a year until he lost 70lbs and was cleared for the operation.

After the transplant the hospital sent them a kind Easter gift.



The Spraggins' also posted this very sweet video of their first stroll after the transplant.

Ingeborg McIntosh knew she was suffering from polycystic kidney disease, what she didn't know is that her adopted son, Jordan, had already confirmed he was a match to be a donor.
The McIntosh's had many foster children over the years, but when Jordan came along Ingeborg knew instantly she wanted to adopt. And, seeing how the two have so wonderfully taken care of one another, I don't believe she could have made a better decision.
