On "Anderson's" "Amazing Stories of Fate, Chance and Luck" episode, Gail recounted her astonishing story of an improbable meeting with the man who received her son's kidney. Gail had donated her 17-year-old son Brandon's organs after his death following a seizure four years ago.
After moving into a new home, her brother recommended a painter, Ken, to work on her living room. While making small talk, the two made the connection when Ken told her, “I just celebrated my four-year anniversary of a kidney transplant on February 13th."
Gail continued, "I just looked at him, and said, 'My son died on February 12 and we donated his organs.'"
Ken initially told Gail that his donor was "twenty -four and had died in a car accident," but later confessed he lied because he felt guilty about not responding to Gail's letters, which she had written to Brandon's organ recipients after his death.
