Woman Gives Husband a Kidney for Valentine’s Day
James Jones and Melissa Degesso-Jones of Lake Mary, Florida met two years ago, on Valentine’s Day. And this year, Melissa is giving James a Valentine’s Day gift that will put the rest of us to shame.
According to Channel 13 News in Florida, Melissa and James are both going into surgery today so she can give him one of her kidneys. James has been in renal failure for a long time, and Melissa got tested. She said she never had any doubt that she’d be a match.
The surgeon who will perform the operation said, quote, “Melissa is making the rest of us look bad. Most of us buy an expensive box of candy and call it a day.”
