HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT)– Days before Christmas and the Post family from Madison is on the way to the Mayo Clinic so 11-year-old Anna can receive the gift of life, and her dad can provide that same gift to a stranger.
The family was flown on board an Angel Flight, a not-for-profit service that provides free transportation to patients needing emergency care, to Rochester, Minnesota Thursday for the very important procedure.
Anna’s kidneys are failing and she had been on the donor list for months with no luck, but that did not stop this family from praying for a Christmas miracle.
“We got the call there was a match, its amazing,” Anna’s mom Lisa Post said.
Jeff Post will also be going in for surgery, donating one of his kidney’s to a complete stranger who then in turn will have one of their family members give a matching kidney to Anna.
