ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -
It wasn't your
traditional avenue for advertising for a kidney transplant, but it led to Bryson
Dickman receiving a brand new kidney.
The poster the Dickman
family plastered around their hometown of Acworth asking the community for help
said, "Save a life. Be an organ donor."
Those words moved
Carters native Tina Jennings to make a decision.
"I just saved his kidney
for him, you only need one," said Jennings. "I felt like this is his kidney and
it is exactly where it needs to be and I am happy about that."
Jennings said she saw
the poster in a doctor's office where she went for an allergy shot. If she
didn't have allergies Jennings said she might not have seen the poster.
"If I wasn't allergic to
cats I wouldn't have been in the allergy clinic and I wouldn't have seen the
sign. So, I am grateful for that," Jennings said.
