An Arizona woman who donated a kidney to a complete stranger said it was the most rewarding thing she ever did, even though she has never met the recipient. Beth Ramirez, who felt a call to help someone who needed it after her own daughter was diagnosed with an illness two years ago, went through the operating room in February.
While he could not help his son through organ donation, he had read an article about living donors and felt compelled to do something.
"I felt a bump on my shoulder that said:" This is what I've been preparing you for, "Ramirez told Fox 10 Phoenix. "I made people tell me," Why would you do this? Why would you do this? What if your daughter needs a kidney? "" What if your loved ones need it? " A kidney? "

But Ramirez said after working with Banner University Medical Center, the only thought in his mind was: "why would not you?"
Although his addressee has remained anonymous, Ramírez said there is a possibility that they may meet for the first time in the coming weeks. Ramirez returned to work after a three-week recovery and also said he would do it again "in the blink of an eye" if he could.
"All you need is a willing heart and a little time," he said. He told Fox 10 Phoenix.
