Two total strangers say they’re alive today because of the sacrifice from their loved one.

Black Underwood’s mother needed a kidney. He got tested but he wasn’t a match.

On the other side of the country, Jay Matuska was also waiting for a kidney transplant and he was a match with Blake.

The wonderful and life saving twist, Matuska’s wife was a match with Blake’s mother.

“I was grateful to be in a position to help,” said Underwood.

The two families had a successful kidney swap and enjoyed the holidays with a new lease on life.
