Principal plans to donate a kidney to student

Filed under: , ,

It's not uncommon to see school principals doing things to inspire their students. But a middle school teacher in New Hampshire may be inspiring his students in a whole new way. Jim Friel is donating one of his kidneys to 13-year-old Morgan Corliss. Morgan has had a kidney disorder since early childhood, but has gone rapidly down hill in recent months.

Friel said that when he heard they were looking for donors, he volunteered. He's one of only two people who were a match. Though he's worried about his health and safety, he says he's determined to go ahead to give Morgan a chance at a happy life. Now that's dedication.
