A son gives the ultimate Mother's Day gift: A life-saving organ transplant (Video)

What a wonderful story.

"Gwen Finlayson had been sick for nearly three decades, living a full life before she finally needed a liver transplant. Her son Brandon knew he wanted to help the woman who had given him so much, giving her the life-saving gift just in time for Motherís Day."

1. That is a wonderful story! I'm glad she accepted her son's gift.

It sure seems appropriate to me: first she gave him life, and then he returned the favor.

They probably took a part of his liver; the whole organ would be impossible in this case, but even a lobe or two will do it. The liver regenerates.

Thanks for sharing this wonderful story!
