Patriots quarterback Tom Brady tried unsuccessfully to find a kidney for his mentor Tom Martinez, who died earlier this year while awaiting an organ donation. Thanks to Brady’s efforts, however, at least one other person will not perish.
According to NECN.com, 48-year-old Peter Hughes has donated a kidney to a woman he didn’t know.
Hughes used the Matching Donors website, promoted by Brady. And Hughes was found to be a match for Asja Bethiel, a mother of two.
