It’s one thing to give your loved one a chocolate heart for Valentines Day, it’s another to actually give her one of your organs.
Errin Tollefson was able to return home to celebrate Valentines Day with a brand new kidney donated to her by her fiancee Chris Willenborg.
The Saskatchewan couple met about five years ago, and Errin told Chris that she was on a waiting list for a new kidney.
Her father was going to be a donor, but he developed cancer that spread to his kidney and he passed away.
Chris decided to get tested, and was told by a doctor that he was a perfect match. They underwent surgeries earlier this month, and Errin was released from hospital late Friday, just in time for Valentines Day.
Chris says he just wanted to help the person he loves.
