Massachusetts boss donates kidney to save her worker’s life
Dave Collins was living a busy life a year ago as a husband and father. He also taught masonry at Essex Tech in Danvers, Mass.
Everything came to a halt in April 2022, after a meeting with his doctor. She found Collins was in end stage renal failure.
Collins immediately went on dialysis and was put on a transplant list.
His only child – and co-worker at Essex Tech – launched a social media campaign to get her dad a kidney.
They found a number of matches, but the surgeries were cancelled at the last minute.
Then something amazing happened. Collins’ boss – the superintendent – volunteered to donate one of her own kidneys – and was a match!
