Daughter donates part of kidney to father as the ultimate Christmas gift | Health
A 23-year-old daughter wanted to give her father the ultimate Christmas gift this season.
It wasn't a tie, a coffee mug or much adored tools.
Brandy Sevier donated part of her kidney to her father, Joe.
The transplant surgery took place the morning of December 18 at Methodist Central Hospital.
Family members report both patients are resting and recovering on schedule.
Brandy felt that the most important gift to give this year was one of saving her dad.
She was the one to offer part of her kidney when the search went out without a connection or match.
Her family considers her courage, determination and cheerful hearts to be beyond her age and maturity.
Brandy is a student at the University of Memphis and works part time to support herself and family.
Her uncle, Carl Person, says the list of awards, church activities, community service and good deeds related to Nicole is long and impressive, but this one set the bar higher.
