Retired firefighter urges San Antonians to 'save a life' through organ donation
SAN ANTONIO - April is 'Donate Life Month' and a retired firefighter is celebrating the moment that saved his life.
Jay Williams marked the one year anniversary of his kidney transplant on Wednesday by teaming up with Christus Santa Rosa - Medical Center to encourage others to save a life.
Last year, Williams was on vacation when he learned a family friend was a perfect match and he would soon get a new kidney.
Hospital leaders say Williams is one of nearly 700 people who've undergone a transplant at the Christus Transplant Institute since 1999.
