Back in 2004, Bryan Herrington, who is from Pensacola, died in an accident, but because he was an organ donor, five of his organs were used in life-saving operations. His wife’s name is Terri and to honor him, she decided to register as a living donor, just in case she could ever help someone too.
One of Bryan’s kidneys went to a guy named Jeffrey Granger who was on dialysis. 16 years later, Terri saved him again by giving him one of her kidneys. The surgery happened last year, and he’s doing a lot better now. The bonus for Terri was she got to do one more thing with Bryan, 16 years after he died.
Through the power of organ donation, Terri Herrington was, in a special way, reunited with her late husband Bryan. She donated a kidney to Jeff Granger, who had received a kidney & pancreas from Terri's husband Bryan 16 years before. #DonateLifeMonth https://t.co/8IDyQxSFWz pic.twitter.com/a4kCS6TZ9b— UF Health (@UFHealth) April 23, 2021
