The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports doctors at Duke University Hospital in Durham, North Carolina, removed a kidney from 41-year-old Edgewater firefighter David Blair on Nov. 15 and prepped 33-year-old Heidi Hughes to receive it. The surgery went well. Blair is home and recovering.
Blair says faith led him to donate a kidney after he saw a social media post by Garry Hughes , seeking help for his daughter. Blair took a survey through the hospital s organ transplant website and then a series of follow-up tests.
Heidi Hughes, of Colorado Springs, Colorado, is thankful and says she intends to take good care of Blair s gift.
