Good News Friday: Two families donate organs to each other

This is a story that you simply don’t see often. This story is really special.

It starts off typical:

After Kalem Millard’s fatal accident, his parents made the difficult decision to donate his pancreas, which ultimately saved the life of Jake MacKinnon.

Okay, this is when things get interesting:

Nearly 10 years later, Bill Millard, Kalem’s father, was in desperate need of a kidney transplant after suffering from diabetes. Jake MacKinnon’s mother, Janice MacKinnon, will donate her kidney to Bill Millard Friday at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco.

How about that? C’mon now…you really don’t see this type of story often.

ABC has the story.
