Enterprise Man Receives Kidney Donation from Daughter


An Enterprise man is back home after receiving a kidney from his oldest daughter. An act Kimmy Jordan credits with saving his life.

After years on dialysis, Jordan's daughter, Kimalie volunteered to donate her dad a kidney.

The surgery took place last month at UAB Medical Center.

Kimmy says he never asked for such generosity, but she couldn't sit and watch her die.

"It meant everything to me because my way of life was hard and for her to give up to me. means the difference to me," says Kimmy.

Both father and daughter are doing well after the surgery.

The average wait on the donor list is anywhere from three to five years.
