The Donor

Brenda Jones, a 69-year-old great-grandmother, had spent a long year on the donor list waiting to receive a liver.

Then, on July 18, a hospital in North Texas called—they had a viable liver for her.

Meanwhile, 23-year-old Abigail Flores also needed a liver. Her situation was more urgent than Jones’s. Without a transplant, doctors feared Flores had maybe one more day to live.

So they asked Jones to give up her spot so that Flores could get the precious organ. Jones agreed.

“In my heart, I wouldn’t have been able to live with the liver if I had let this little girl die,” she told WFAA.

Jones was placed back at the top of the donor list and received a new liver just a few days later.
