Chicago Woman Marries Her Liver Donor – The Good News [VIDEO]
This was literally a match made in heaven.
A couple of years ago, Heather Krueger was diagnosed with stage 4 liver disease. At just 27-years-old, they told her that she didn’t have much time left.
This is where Chris Dempsey comes in – he’s a code enforcement officer for the village of Frankfort, Illinois. One day, he heard a coworker talking about a liver donor. So, he went to get tested to find out if he was a match – and he was. He had never met Heather before, so they went out to lunch.
About half of Chris’s liver was removed and transplanted to Heather, and everything went smoothly. So smoothly, in fact, that they bonded…and got married last weekend.
I can’t even. Pass the tissues!
