Indiana Woman Who Donated Kidney Weds Organ Recipient

Posted: Updated:

BROWNSBURG, Ind. (AP) -- A central Indiana woman who promised to donate one of her kidneys to a man she barely knew has married him three years after his successful transplant surgery.

Chelsea Clair and Kyle Froelich met at a 2009 car show when he was 19 and she was 22. Clair learned that day that Froelich had a serious kidney disease - and she told him then and there she would give him one of hers.

She underwent the necessary tests and ended up being a near perfect match. Three years ago, she donated one of her kidneys to Froelich.

The Indianapolis Star reports ( HTTP://INDY.ST/1CEJSBM ) that the couple was married Oct. 12 at the Danville Conservation Club, the venue that hosted the car show where they met.
