Leigh Searcy, a TV reporter who worked in Lexington, Kentucky was inspired to donate her kidney after interviewing a kidney donor in a news segment. She wanted to make a difference in someone’s life and decided to donate her kidney to a stranger. Searcy’s donation sparked a chain of kidney donations that helped a total of four people. The surgery was successful, and Searcy and the recipient, Donna, formed a close bond after the procedure. They stay in touch and often go out to lunch together. Searcy encourages others to consider becoming a living donor, saying that the experience has been one of the most fulfilling things she has ever done. She believes that even the smallest act of kindness can have a significant impact on someone’s life.
