An 84-year-old Texas man is now the oldest living kidney donor in the United States.
Frank DeWhurst was out for a walk in his Austin neighborhood when he saw a neighbor’s sign that read, “I’m type O and I need a kidney transplant. Please help me.”
He was a match, so he decided to donate.
A doctor said since DeWhurst was active and not on any medications, he was an ideal candidate.
The procedure went well, and now 72-year-old Linda Nall has a new kidney.
DeWhurst and Nall are both doing great.
DeWhurst says he hopes others who are health will also donate, no matter their age.
