Bride Receives Kidney from Husband’s Best Man

A report has revealed that a young bride got the kiss of life from her husband’s best man as he donated one of his kidneys to save her life. Leanne Stefanovic, 31, was suffering from kidney failure since 2007 and needed to go on dialysis daily for nine hours.

This daily activity left her tired all the day and she used to face difficulty in doing even trivial works. It was only in last year when she got married with Shaun Stefanovic, 37, in Cyprus. His best friend who was also the best man in his wedding came forth to help Leanne as only his tissue matched with her.

Everyone tried that their tissues get matched with Leanne, but it did not, said her husband Shaun, who further affirmed that his best man was the chosen one to give another life to Leanne. Doctors have already made it clear that if Leanne would not get a donor soon then she might have to face her death.

After the tissues got matched, the operation was being conducted at St James's Hospital in Leeds. It is reported that the operation went well and both have been recovering well.

Stuart Kilgannon, 39, who donated one his kidneys to his best friend’s wife Leanne, said that he would soon be released from the hospital, but he has got chest infection which would get alright with the given medicines.

He further affirmed, “I've seen Leanne and she looks ten years younger. Her kidney function is better than mine. To see how she looks is unbelievable”.

On the other side, Leanne said that she could not thank enough Stuart, who has acted as life saver for her. She said that now she would be able to resume her studies and all the credit of it goes to Stuart.

The doctors said that Leanne has to take anti-rejection injections for rest of her life. But they said that it is better than to be on dialysis.
