Mom donates kidney to son giving him second chance at life
(FOX 11) - A patient treated at Cedars-Sinai hospital has a lot to be thankful for this holiday season.
He gets a second chance at life -- all thanks to his mom.
Harley Brackney was snowboarding when he fell.
Doctors say a seizure caused his fall.
While treating him, they discovered he had 5th-stage kidney failure.
They say the best chance the 20-year-old had was a transplant.
Fortunately, Brackney's mom was a perfect match and gave him one of her kidneys and she did!
Brackney says he's recovering well.
