Mom gets kidney from donor after ad on billboard

Recommended Posts

A Wisconsin woman who used a billboard to seek a kidney donor credits the ensuing publicity for helping her find a match.

Stephanie Henderson had a kidney transplant in the 1990s, but the new kidney has also failed.

To help find a new donor, family and friends created "Team Steph." The group bought a billboard along Highway 41 that read, "Young Mother Needs Live Kidney Donor. Is It You?"

WBAY-TV did a story on the billboard, and someone who saw the coverage stepped forward and went through the necessary testing. A match was confirmed, and Henderson now has a new kidney.

Team Steph member Joy Sams says she's so thankful for the news. She says there's no present that can match it for Christmas.
