According to Seattle news station KHOU, 36-year old Dan Garrett got a new kidney after his wife put up a message on Facebook looking for a donor. The couple couldn't find a match among friends and family, but Facebook member Aly Carr, 26, offered up hers.
Facebook isn't the only site people are using to seek help to find kidney matches. In 2011, a Twitter member with a kidney disease tweeted that he needed a kidney and 19 people offered to find out if they might be a match, and eventually received a kidney.
