Triple Threat: Jessica, LaKishia & JePahl

LaKishia White of Fresno and Jessica Jurado of Sacramento are not the kind of women that are going to let the phrase “incompatible” stand in their way. LaKishia wanted to donate to her husband, JePahl, but the two weren’t a match. Jessica wanted to donate to her mother, but they weren’t a match either. LaKishia and Jessica then heard about something called a Paired Exchange Program, where they could be part of a kidney chain involving an altruistic living kidney donor and a series of mismatched pairs like theirs. The result? Jessica’s kidney went to JePahl and in return Jessica’s mother got a kidney from a Santa Barbara woman. LaKishia’s kidney went to someone in Pennsylvania.
