This just in from the Department of Because it’s Friday:
In Dupont, Wash., Nicole McNeil uttered the three most important words a human can say to another: “how are you?”
And Vince Villano, one of her customers at the Starbucks where she works, answered. He needed a kidney.
Polycystic kidney disease was taking its toll.
She went home and told her husband, Justin, who, like Vince, is also an Army veteran.
“I said, ‘I’ve got a kidney, you know, we could do this. I think I’m willing to do that.’ It didn’t take long,” Justin.
Not as long as the process and testing necessary to provide a kidney, anyway.
On Wednesday, Vince got his kidney.
