Woman finds kidney donor in unusual place


GLEN DALE, W.Va. – Kidneys on Craigslist may not sound like a popular item on the site, but this unusual listing may actually save a woman’s life.

Cindy Prettyman’s kidneys are failing, leaving her no choice but to go on dialysis.

Doctors told Cindy it could take five to ten years before she gets a transplant.

Cindy’s son Jeremy did not like that answer.

Cindy said, “He called me the next day and says mom I put out an ad on Craigslist, and I said you got to be kidding me, Jeremy what for? “

One lady saw this ad and called the family saying she would like to donate one of her kidneys.

Cindy did not know what to expect

“I said who gives a kidney to a total stranger? And she say it’s something that I always wanted to do. I always wanted to give to somebody.” said Cindy.

It turns out that the donor and Cindy are a match.

They are now waiting and hope to have the transplant sometime by May or June.
