MINNEAPOLIS — A Twin Cities man has donated a kidney to a virtual stranger.

Twenty-seven-year-old Gary Bozicevich (BOZ’-eh-vich) has been on a kidney transplant list since 2004. He needed dialysis three days a week. That’s until Tom Morgan came along. The two men share a co-worker, Molly King, at separate workplaces. King was talking to Morgan about Bozicevich’s condition when Morgan asked if there was anything he could do to help. Morgan decided to find out if he was a match. He was indeed.

Now the two men share a special bond. KSTP-TV says the two are out of the hospital following the transplant surgery last week and are doing well.

Bozicevich says there’s no gift he can give Morgan to repay him for his kindness.
