In today's edition of the "Good Stuff," a Minnesota cop gets a kidney and takes to social media to help his donor. CNN's Chris Cuomo reports.
Carlos Baires Escobar spent two years waiting for a kidney when his prayers were answered in the form of 20-year-old Sebastian Rivera responding on social media.
“Without any reservations, he just decided to help somebody who he didn’t know,” Baires Escobar said
Rivera says he doesn’t regret the decision at all.
“Helping someone out, just because…it should be a normal thing, you know.”
Well, unfortunately Rivera had to go through something other than just losing his kidney.
Shortly before he donated, he crashed his car in the awful Minnesota weather. And then, with his recovery came an inability to work to pay to get it fixed.
That's when the man carrying his kidney decided it was time to step up for him.
The Facebook page where the police officer once asked for an organ, now includes a plea to help Rivera.
If you’d like to help, you can donate to any US Bank branch under the Help a Hero fund.
