COMING UP: Determined Teen, Tonight on CBS4 at 10 (Watch Preview)

Saving The Lives Of 3 With 1 Organ

The real meaning of the season comes to light with the story of how one woman — Sarah Sampsel — gives another woman one of her kidneys.

Dr. Lisa Latts needed a transplant after complications stemming from the birth of her twins.

CBS4’s Gloria Neal followed Sarah and Lisa throughout the year-long ordeal, from Lisa having to go on dialysis and finding a donor to the mixed emotions of Sarah — the donor — and how they both feel today (2-months post transplant). The lives of both women have been changed forever.

    Gloria, thank you for such gracious coverage of this story and I truly hope it may encourage others to consider living donation. I know I don’t have any regrets and am so pleased that my “old” kidney is now residing in someone so worthy. Sarah Sampsel
