FEEL GOOD STORY: Coach Gives Player Kidney
HUFFINGTONPOST.COM - Two weeks ago, Wake Forest baseball coach Tom Walter went under the knife to save the life of a young player suffering from an autoimmune disorder.
Walter donated his kidney to help outfielder Kevin Jordan recover.
The story of Walter's donation made national news, inspiring a flurry of phone calls to the National Kidney Foundation, WFMY News reports, as others were wondering how they too could make a difference.
While Jordan has a much longer recovery process ahead, Walter has returned to coaching. The coach was cheered by fans, who celebrated him as a local hero for his live-saving gift.
