Literally a life-saver for Ryan and Ashley Wagner of Chicago.
The high school sweethearts learned their son Miles had a rare condition which was causing organ failure.
Miles was in need of both a liver and a kidney transplant. After nearly a year of dialysis, Miles received a new liver and six months later, doctors informed them that he was strong enough for a kidney transplant.
Unfortunately, they were told that finding a perfect match could take as long as six years. But Ryan and Ashley weren't going to wait that long.
Ashley made a desperate plea on Facebook looking for anyone who could be a match. Finally, and old high school friend of theirs came forward. Elizabeth Wolodkiewicz knew she had the same blood type and had herself tested to see if she was a match. She was, and earlier this week she and Miles underwent successful transplant surgery.
Ashley wrote on Facebook, "The bright, bright future that's in-store for Miles would not be possible without his incredible organ donors. To be on the receiving end of organ donation not once but twice leaves me in awe, truly."
