KMBC: Kidney recipient, donor meet for the first time since transplant
April 16, 2021
More than 100,000 people are on a waiting list for an organ. One kidney patient said he owes his life to a complete stranger.
Andy McEachron and Harold Tignor would have never met were it not for a Facebook post explaining how McEachron was in desperate need of a new kidney.
KMBC was there when they met for the first time virtually and talked to Dr. Lee Cummings, transplant surgeon at Saint Luke's Health System, about the importance of generous organ donors like Tignor.
