After His Kidney Donation Saves His Fiancée’s Life, a Community Throws the Couple a Dream Wedding
Shortly after Alyssa and Steven started dating, Alyssa underwent kidney and pancreatic transplant surgery. But a year later, Alyssa’s new kidney began to fail and doctors told her she needed another transplant. Unbeknownst to Alyssa, Steven got tested and learned he was a match. Exactly one year after giving Alyssa his kidney, Steven proposed. When a bridal store employee learned that medical bills left the couple unable to pay for the type of wedding they’d hoped for, she gave Alyssa her own dress and rallied local vendors to throw the couple the wedding of their dreams.
