When Morris saw Nicherie’s Craigslist ad on her Facebook page, she emailed him.
“I knew there was someone in desperate need of a kidney if they are posting on the internet,’’ she said.
In their ensuing conversations, Nicherie and Morris found they had several interests in common, including being born at the same hospital in Newport Beach, California.
“I just saw it as signs that this was meant to be,’’ Nicherie told KTVU. “I couldn’t have planned it better. I couldn’t have written it better myself.”
Tuesday, after more than six months of preparation and tests, Morris donated her kidney to Nicherie.
“I just got lucky that she was that amazing and that she was willing to give me such a gift,’’ Nicherie told KTVU. “I’m just ready to end one journey and start another one.”
Because the internet brought them together, the two have united to help others find donors online, launching a website, findakidneydonor.
