Must have been a slow news day. Just about any uncle would have done this for his nephew.

How many uncles or family members have you heard of.... 90% are cadavers that are given..
I would rather hear or read of a miracle than to hear of another person murdered in La Puente

Miracle? Where was there a "miracle"? You must be one of those who see Jesus in your toast or on the tree in your front yard.

Don't get me wrong; I'm a believer. But some people are really out there!

You are right, good to hear these type of stories! Some people just don't get it and that is too bad.

How can you be a believer and judge... you dont know what really happened.. the miracle is he is alive and living and the young man did not reject the kidney.. and the Jesus toast thing.. pleae keep that to yourself cause you dont know if I am a Christian.

Don't tell me what to "keep to myself". I'll post whatever I damn well please.

Well, in that case, it's a miracle any of us are alive. So I guess yeah...this is just another in BILLIONS of examples each day. LOL!

But that's hardly newsworthy, nor was this story.

This is a great story. And there are not many family members out there that would donate. My baby Vinnie was born with a rare condition and was not given hope to survive. He began dialysis when he was 8mts old, then got his kidney at 2 1/2 yrs old. Not one person from my large family stepped up to offer to test for him. His dad and older brother we not a match and I tested and was waiting to see if I matched then we got a call. Vinnie got offered a kidney from a 14 yr old. All said and done he is doing great and we are blessed for Organ Donors who give the gift to others. And this family is blessed for being so caring for one another. See Vinnie on facebook vinnie dodd

Wow! Your family sucks.

Wouldn't hesitate for one second to do this for one of my nieces or nephews.

By the way, it's not a great story.

You even saying that is funny. You can't possibly be objective.

How old are you, 5? Is someone mistreating you? Go tell an adult maybe that would help. Did you forget your medication or bottle? Why are you so unhappy with life? What joy do you get out of being so righteous at other peoples expense?
Does making other people sad give you some type of thrill, does it make you feel big?
You need to go seek some help!

LOL!! You're hilarious!!!

Ffor someone who's IN THE STORY to claim it's a great story is moronic. If you don't see that, you must also me a moron.

Perhaps, that wasn't actually posted by someone in the family. I will leave room for that possibility.

I agree with you completely on this, but lets not give into his/her negativity. To each his own.

Your negativity and your selfish way of thinking give that wave from you that nothing will ever make you happy... Try Jesus ... I pray the Lord to forgive you and that you never go through what these mothers have gone through.

Look up big words before you use them. My stating that this is not newsworthy is not being negative. It's merely an observation.

For someone who claims to be Christian, it's hilarious you would judge me, as to whether or not I "have Jesus" in my life. I just so happen to. But being Christian doesn't mean I'm not entitled to an opinion.

What whacko church do you belong to?
