An individual named Christopher Dempsey offered half his liver to a complete stranger who is now his wife.
The love story began with a conversation overheard in a workplace break room in Frankfort, a village south of Chicago, Illinois.Miss Krueger had stage four liver disease, and had been ill for about two years already when doctors told her she only had a 50% chance of surviving another two months without a transplant.
Her family were in a race against time to find her a donor – a hugely difficult task in a country with more than 119,000 people on its transplant waiting lists.
That was where code enforcement officer Mr Dempsey came in.
The 38-year-old decided to get himself tested and discovered he was a match for the then Miss Krueger, now 27.
The first time they spoke was the moment he called to tell her he would be her donor at the start of February 2015. Later, she would tell him how she and her mother had cried tears of joy after receiving the call.
