Stacey & Mike's Happy News: Teacher Donates Kidney To Student

Eddie McCarthy, a math teacher at Whitmer High School in Toledo, Ohio, taught Roman McCormick geometry last school year, but he's going to give Roman more than just skills for life: Roman's parents hope one of McCarthy's kidneys will give the 15-year-old "his teenage years back."

Roman, a high school sophomore, has BOR syndrome, a rare, hereditary condition that affects tissue development and can cause ear and kidney malformations.

Eddie, the teacher, ended up seeing Roman's story five months ago and said he didn't dwell on it too much, but within a couple of days, he called and went to get tested to see if he could help.

And they WERE a match! Fast forward to today: The donation and transplant surgeries will take place this afternoon 

Roman’s parents said they are immensely grateful to Eddie for his selfless act for their son.

Gotta thank Mia in Vancouver for sharing this story. If you've got a Happy News Story please share.
