NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) - After three hours on the operating table, a hospital spokesman was happy to report that Jacki Bruce now has a functioning kidney obtained through Norfolk's first kidney swap. Tuesday morning, Jacki's husband, Collin, donated his kidney to a patient in another state.
WAVY.com spoke to the couple a few days ago.
"He's absolutely amazing, that he's willing to give up an organ for m," Jacki said.
"It was a relatively easy decision for me," Collin countered. "The woman that I love is suffering and I have it in my power to make life a little bit better for her."
