The Good News: A Woman Gave Her Husband A Kidney For Their 50th Wedding Anniversary.

Mike and Jan Maulsby live in Clear Lake, Minnesota, and Mike’s been on the transplant list for a kidney for five years.

He has kidney failure, and he’s been on dialysis for the past year, and apparently he’d had enough. So his family finally stepped up.

His son Grant was a match, and went through a whole bunch of testing. But he had some health problems that made surgery a bad idea until next year, and Mike didn’t want to wait.

That’s when Mike’s wife Jan came through. She was a match too, and decided to donate HER kidney last week, on their 50th wedding anniversary.

The surgery was in Rochester, Minnesota this past Thursday, and Mike and Jan are both already out of the hospital…doing just fine. 🙂
