Good Father | Donates His Kidney to Save His Three-year-Old Daughter's Life

How far can you go for your own blood? Well this devoted dad has donated a kidney to his toddler daughter to save her life.

37yrs old Lee Chester made the brave decision after his 3-year-old daughter Esme's kidney suddenly failed and she suffered a stroke. At just 3? Serious matter!

Now, he and the little girl are recovering in hospitals and are both doing 'really well', the Manchester Evening News reports. Speaking from his hospital bed, Mr Chester said:

“We are both doing really well. I’m so glad it’s gone well for Esme. She’s eating mashed potato in bed. I’m quite sore so I’ll have to milk it at home for a bit. It really does show the importance of opting in for organ donation. It really does save lives."

On donating his own kidney, he added: "This is something [I believe] that any parent would do..."




Father and daughter before the health crisis.
Doctors are still trying to find out what caused Esme’s kidneys to suddenly fail and why she suffered a potentially-deadly stroke.
