So many people have hearts of gold, but this woman has a heart of gold, and a kidney to match.

A waitress from Georgia received some devastating news about one of her regular customers, and she couldn’t bare the thought of him being in pain.

Don Thomas, a regular at the restaurant, was given a grim prognosis after losing both of his to cancer.

“I said, ‘Well I have two kidneys, do you want one of mine?’ “ said Mariana Villarreal, the gracious donor.

His reply, ‘I will accept it’. And she couldn’t have been happier to hear he would take it. Why? Because she lost her grandmother to kidney failure, and wasn’t able to do anything to help her.

Mariana and Don…

“I wasn’t able to do anything for my grandma. If (Don) can live two more years, happy as he’s ever been, that’s fine with me. That’s not up to me. I did my part, now it’s God’s turn to keep him alive,” said Mariana.

The surgery was successful, and the two have gone on with their lives, happily and HEALTHY! Don is still doing well, and we are so thankful for Mariana’s generosity. She saved his life, and he will forever be grateful for what she did for him.
