Brittany Hay uses one word to describe the moment she found out she was a perfect match to donate her kidney to her boyfriend — overwhelming.
“At first, you kind of don’t believe that it would actually be him and I but obviously, the stars aligned,” said Hay.
Hay and her boyfriend Colin Grieve live in Smithfield, around 33 kilometres southwest of Fredericton. Last week they made the trip to Halifax for the life-changing surgery.
Grieve was born with polycystic kidney disease, a genetic disorder that causes fluid-filled cysts to grow in the kidneys.
