Chain Results in 10 Kidney Swaps Among Strangers
"There's a very good possibility that when I'm dead and gone, this chain will still be going on."
- Matthew Jones, intitial donor
Petoskey, Michigan, USA - When Matthew Jones decided to donate a kidney to a stranger, the Michigan father of five had no idea he'd be starting a lifesaving, "pay it forward" chain.
His kidney donation to a Phoenix woman in 2007 set off a long-running organ swap that resulted in 10 sick people getting new kidneys over a year. It hasn't ended yet.
