Organ transplant comes full circle for two families

California – Nearly 10 years ago one family lost their son and donated his pancreas went on to save the life of a young man.

Bill Millard desperately needs a kidney transplant after suffering from diabetes. Ten years ago, Millard’s son died in an accident. His pancreas saved a 19-year-old Jake MacKinnon.

According to our affiliate, KGO-TV Millard received a kidney from Jake’s mother, Janice, Friday.

The families kept in touch over the years. Once a year the MacKinnos have a tree lighting ceremony to honor the Millards and their son.
