Sarah Grant & Tori Walker

Generous, giving and compassionate are just a few of the words used to describe Sarah Grant. As a wife, mother, and an intensive care trauma nurse, it is these characteristics that make her so good at her job, and also made her the perfect person to want to donate one of her kidneys to nearly a complete stranger.

In July 2014, Tori Walker found herself in desperate need of a person just like Sarah. She posted a poem that she wrote called “Are You the One?” on the Facebook page of her church, and as fate would have it Sarah saw the poem and answered yes to the fellow mother of young children that she had only met once. “Thankfully, after all of the screening and testing, I was found to be a match and was able to give Tori the chance at a healthy life with her family,” said Sarah. “Post-transplant I am back to playing with my kids, working and life as normal.”
