Owner and donor meet up and become best friends.
41-year-old Booker T. Williams, from California, underwent a kidney transplant procedure in May 2019, when he was already at stage 5 of a kidney disease. A complete stranger - Lisa Sorlie, 53, from Wisconsin, donated her kidney to save his life. The two of them connected by accident through a Facebook group for kidney donors. Lisa and Booker quickly became “best friends” and started planning to meet.
In May this year, the two of them met for the first time at the Milwaukee Brewers vs. Los Angeles Dodgers baseball game. "It was awesome. We just talked through everything. I would have missed the game," Lisa commented.
To top things off, Booker surprised her at the end of the third innings when on the scoreboard appeared a message: “Happy transplant anniversary 143. With all my kidney, you’re my hero, Lisa Sorlie.”
One good turn deserves another!
