On Monday, Wake Forest baseball coach Tom Walter donated a kidney.
However, his donation wasn't to a family member or a best friend. Walter donated his kidney to Kevin Jordan, a freshman outfielder who has yet to play a game for the baseball team.
Jordan was diagnosed with ANCA vasculitus, a type of autoimmune swelling that causes autoantibodies to attack healthy cells in the body. In Jordan's case, his kidneys were only functioning at 15 percent to 20 percent, according to an ESPN report.
None of Jordan's family members were a match for a kidney donation. When Walter found out his blood type was the same as Jordan, he tested to see if he was a match for a kidney donation. He was approved on Jan. 28.
Wake Forest said that it will take several months for both men to fully recover.
Would you donate a kidney to someone you only knew for a short period of time? Why or why not?
