Eagles Fan Gets Organ Donation From Patriots Fan
As the Patriots get ready to face off against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday (November 17th), it good to see people can put rivalries aside to save a life.
According to CBS 3 in Philadelphia, an Eagles fan is on the road to recovery, thanks to a kidney from a Patriots fan.
Due to a hereditary disease, Eagles fan Patti Pizzimenti needed a kidney. She waited on a donor list for two years. She finally got her kidney thanks to an organ exchange at Yale New Haven Hospital in Connecticut. Her daughter-in-law donated a kidney to someone in dire need. In return, Patti got a kidney from someone who had such a great life, he decided to give back.
The man's name is John Houlihan. Ironically, he's as big of a Patriots fan as she is a fan of the Eagles.
