KMBC: Anonymous kidney donor turns out to be surprise of a lifetime

August 25, 2018

Two Kansas City-area sorority sisters now share a bond they never expected. And it all started with a secret. One of them was holding on to news that would change both of their lives.

Doncella Liggins has kidney disease. She was on a transplant waiting list when she got the news of a match - an anonymous donor.

Doncella and Beverly Burch have been friends and sorority sisters for decades - living in the small town of Butler, Missouri.

Both were thrilled when doctors at Saint Luke's told Doncella they'd found a donor kidney.

"I said 'WHAT?' And he said, 'Yeah, there's a match.' And I said, 'Who?'" said Doncella. "He said, 'Well, I can't tell you. The only thing I can tell you is that they're young and healthy.'"

For the next six months, Beverly was hiding a secret. She was that anonymous donor.

Watch KMBC's sorty below to find out how Doncella found out Beverly was her anonymous donor.
