Instead of giving up when no suitable kidney donor could be found for her 15 year old daughter, Lisa decided to use the web to reach out for help.
In her blog ‘the Domestic Diva’ she explained her situation and how people could donate. Just about 3 weeks later the right donor is found.
This message got ‘retweeted’ and shared via Facebook, several thousand times: ‘15 year old girl needs a kidney. She’s dying. Can you help? Can you at least retweet? http://tinyurl.com/6bue7f’
Who could have known that one of Lisa’s ebay friends would turn out to be the right kidney donor to save her little daughter?
In her recent blog post Lisa states: “I am amazed by the power of the web and the hearts of those who helped make a difference.”
