Heather Kruger was a young, vibrant nursing assistant living in the Chicago area when she received life-changing news. Her liver was failing, and without a transplant, she wouldn’t have much time left. Friends and family checked, but no one was a match. Things were looking bleak when the impossible happened – a stranger stepped up, with an incredible offer.
Former Marine Chris Dempsey had heard about Heather’s struggle at his work, and wanted to help. He contacted the hospital, went through testing and, amazingly, was a match. The two spent the next few months in recovery, but their story doesn’t end there. What happened to them next is truly one in a million.
