Two Parkway teachers donate their kidneys to help save others
By Kathy Thompson
ROCKFORD - Two Parkway Elementary School second-grade teachers are being called "angels" and "lifesavers" after donating vital organs to people close to them.
Deb Kirby, 40, Celina, and Kay Brandt, 56, Rockford, each donated a kidney last year.
Kirby donated to her mother, Pat Koeller, 66, St. Paris. Brandt intended to donate to a total stranger but ended up donating to family friend Ted Bollenbacher, 62, Rockford. [More]
