Boss donates kidney to save employee’s life

As employees at a liquor store in Lehigh Valley, PA noticed their coworker Rob Fenstermaker slowly dying of polycystic kidney disease, a hereditary and fatal condition, their discussions about how to help led a few employees to get tested to determine if their kidneys were potentially compatible to Rob’s.

Their boss, Brian DeAngelis, also agreed to be tested, and his kidney was found to be a perfect match for Rob.  Brian did not hesitate, and in May 2009, doctors successfully carried out the transplant operation that saved Rob’s life.
