A woman has helped to save the life of her husband by embarking on a weight loss regimen so she could donate an organ.
When her partner Tim required a kidney transplant, doctors found that, by a remarkable coincide, Tracy Jennings was a match, and would be able to give him one of her kidneys.
However, she was so overweight at the time that a successful operation was impossible, and so Tracy set about slimming down to a healthy size.
With her husband’s life at stake, she embarked on an exercise and healthy eating plan which saw her trim from 15 stone to 10 stone, and she is now set to donate her kidney in a procedure next month.
Speaking to the Daily Mirror, Tracy said: “As soon as I knew I could save his life that was it, I was going to slim. It means the world to be able to this for him.”
A grateful Tim added: “I’m very proud of her and grateful. I can’t think of a more special thing a wife can do for her husband.”
