Patty & Richard (known to his friends and family as Frog) may be cousins, but they weren’t really close growing up. Then, one day, Frog got an email from his uncle, Patty’s father. It was sent to the whole family and it said Patty’s kidneys were failing and she would need a transplant. He wasn’t asking for anyone to step up to be her donor, he was just updating the family on her health. Frog didn’t give it a second thought. He responded to his uncle, saying if he was a match, he would be her donor. It turns out, for first cousins, they were a very good match. Patty and Frog are now much closer than when they were kids. They’re not just cousins, they’re kidney cousins!
