When Maricela Garza needed a liver transplant she never thought her then-18-year-old daughter Kathia Martinez would be eager to donate.
Test showed Kathia was a perfect match, but her parents worried about complications.
"Mom was apprehensive about it but I was all for it,” she said. “I even said that day, ‘OK what do you need to do? Blood work? OK, go ahead get my blood’ and the lady was stunned, the nurse was stunned and she said, I think its better you guys go home and talk about it."
So they did, and soon decided to go ahead with transplant.
