Surgery Turns Strangers into Sisters

Nearly 100,000 people in the United States are waiting on a kidney transplant. Sissy Woody is no longer on that list. That's because of Christine Walker, a woman that was once a near stranger.
Nearly 100,000 people in the United States are waiting on a kidney transplant to save their life. Sissy Woody of Loogootee is no longer on that list. That's because of one sermon by one paster that called one woman to give one kidney.

"I was sitting with my family and I said I think I need to make a call and see what I can do," said Christine Walker.

That called changed both their lives. Sissy Woody was in kidney failure, without a transplant she would die.

"They couldn't get my blood pressure under control and started having seizures, kidneys started failing, everything just went to chaos," said Woody.

Walker didn't tell Woody for months that she was going through tests to determine if she was a match. Four months later, their prayers were answered.

"I couldn't believe it," said Woody. "It was a weight lifted off my shoulders."

"I wasn't nervous at all," said Walker. "I was very at peace about it because the longer it went in preparing for it the more I knew God had called me to do this for her."

Doctors removed Walker's left kidney and put it on Woody's right side. Just one surgery later these two former strangers now call themselves 'kidney sisters.'

"It's a bond you can't describe," said Walker.

"She's definitely one of God's children," said Woody about Walker.

Walker says since the surgery two people have contacted her about live organ donation. If you're interested in donating an organ, you can click here for more information.
