Off the Wall News: Woman who donated kidney weds organ recipient

BROWNSBURG, Ind. — A central Indiana woman who promised to donate one of her kidneys to a man she barely knew has married him three years after his successful transplant surgery.

Chelsea Clair and Kyle Froelich met at a 2009 car show when he was 19 and she was 22. Clair learned that day that Froelich had a serious kidney disease — and she told him then and there she would give him one of hers.

She underwent the necessary tests and ended up being a near perfect match. Three years ago, she donated one of her kidneys to Froelich.

The Indianapolis Star reports that the couple was married Oct. 12 at the Danville Conservation Club, the venue that hosted the car show where they met.
