According to People, it all started when Rich O'Dea, 43, took Jennifer Thomas, 35, on a date to an Imagine Dragons concert after they met via Tinder. Rich and Jennifer chatted about life, and in their conversation it came up that Rich's close friend Erika Bragan, 47, had polycystic kidney disease. Sadly, Erika's disease had progressed so far that she needed a new kidney to survive, which was challenging as she had an O-negative blood type and had already been on the list for three years.
Jennifer reportedly felt terrible for Erika, who, like Jennifer, is a mom. After some thinking, she decided to do whatever she could to help out Erika. Though her and Rich did not plan a second date, Jennifer got in touch with Rich in order to see if she could be a match for his friend. Incredibly Jennifer was a match for Erika - and after three months of testing, she agreed to donate her kidney to the mom.
A love connection may not have been made on this date, but an even rarer and more important match was. Major props to Jennifer for taking on such an incredible task for a stranger, and here's hoping she continues swiping on the app: I sense some serious love karma is coming her way.
