BROCKPORT, N.Y. (WHEC) — A couple that has been married for decades proved a perfect match in more ways than one.
When Christina Martin of Brockport found out earlier this year she would need to receive a new kidney or go on dialysis, her husband Daniel leapt into action looking to see if perhaps he was a match.
He was! And as a result, his wife was spared dialysis.
Daniel now says the entire experience has changed their view on life.
"You live your life and do what you need to do, but then this comes along it really does change your perspective on how you can make a difference," Daniel said.
Their doctors told them this sort of thing is quite rare. It's only happened about once in the last four years locally before the Martins.
