Ohio Teacher Donates Her Kidney To a Student In Need

Posted: Updated:

An Ohio teacher is giving her students a life saving lesson on the power of giving.

She is donating a kidney to a student battling a genetic disorder.

Wendy Killian is a teacher at Mansfield Christian School in Ohio, where one girl suffers from a disorder that has left her with one kidney, and that kidney is failing.

When Killian found out she was a match and could donate her kidney, there was no question in her mind that she would do it.

Annette Lawless has the whole story.
