BEACON TRANSCRIPT- Heather Krueger and Chris Dempsey got married after Chis decided to become a liver donor for Heather. This amazing story started in 2014 when Heather Krueger was diagnosed with a liver disease. Doctors warned her that she might not live more than 2 months if she doesn’t get a liver transplant.
This was terrible news for Heather who then worried because it’s not easy to find a liver donor. She believed that she had no change because she had too little time to search for a donor. The miracle happened when a total stranger found out her story and was amazed by it.
Chris Dempsey was the stranger that saw her story. He was a code enforcement officer in Illinois. He heard Heather’s story in a lunch break. Heather was the cousin of one of his colleagues and he mentioned that she might die if nobody decides to be her liver donor. At that moment, Chis Dempsey decided that he would be a liver donor for her in order to save her life.
He mentioned that he always wanted to help people but this time it was different, he wanted to do anything possible for her despite the fact that he never met her. In order to help her, he first needed to find out if he was a match for her because if he wasn’t, he couldn’t be her donor. His tests showed that they were a match and then both set down and discussed the surgery.
To save her, he needed to donate more than half of his liver to Heather. He also wanted to make a fundraiser that could cover the medical expenses that Heather had. He decided that he is the one that is going to be her liver donor.
After they underwent the surgery they both shared their feelings towards each other and they were together since then. They mentioned that they felt a real connection between them. In December, Chris proposed to her and she accepted. Earlier this month, they got married and they are happier than ever. Let’s hope that this amazing story happens again soon. We need more people like this.
