It started off as a simple Craigslist search for construction supplies for Glenn Calderbank. But God obviously had much bigger plans for him that day.
While on the website, Glenn (above, left) saw an ad from a man requesting a kidney donor for his wife, Nina Saria (right). Seeing those words hit Glenn hard because 15 years earlier, his wife was in need of that same thing. Unfortunately, Calderbank was not a match and the kidney his wife received from a cadaver eventually caused complications. After years of struggling with kidney disease, she passed away in 2011. Ever since the tragedy, he wanted to help somebody in need.
And now, that's exactly what he's going to do. Glenn just got cleared for kidney donation last month, and now he is in the final steps of preparation to give his kidney to the sick woman.
"There is no way I saw your ad by accident," Calderbank said he remembered telling her.
We couldn't have said it better ourselves! In the meantime, let's keep them in our prayers for their Dec. 1 operation date.
