So selfless! School teacher donates kidney to sick student.

A'Ja Booth is an 18 year old student of  Detroit High School who has been suffering from kidney problem but her problem came to an end when her gym teacher decided to donate her own kidney to her since both her kidneys are working perfectly.

When asked why she decided to donate one of her kidneys to A'Ja Booth, She replied that she overheard A'Ja Booth telling another teacher that she was writing a book about her life experience, so she decided to read her book.
"After reading her book I decided to donate one of my kidneys to her. If that was my child I will want someone to do the same, Nadirah said"
The operation was performed successfully at Henry Ford hospital by Dr Jason  Danny, a surgeon of the hospital.

This is quite an inspirational story, I hope people will learn from her, to be selfless and kind. May God bless her beautiful heart.
