her husband Jeff, born with a condition affecting his kidneys that had him hooked to a dialysis machine for many painful hours. Cisco, a Facebook friend of Roxy’s, replied about an hour after seeing the message, saying he wanted to talk more.

The transplant was completed on March 30th. “The more you learn, the more you realize how feasible it is,” Cisco said. “It’s like someone dying of thirst and you’re sitting there with two glasses of water.”
