Craigslist organ donor: Kidney transplant made possible with Florida woman’s ‘help needed’ classified - NY Daily News

Craigslist organ donor: Kidney transplant made possible with Florida woman’s ‘help needed’ classified - NY Daily News: A young Florida woman desperately seeking a kidney donor turned to Craigslist as a last ditch effort to save her own life--and she got what she was looking for.

Selina Hodge, 28, from Miami posted her plea in July hoping a generous soul would help her.

"I turned to Craigslist, because I didn't know where else to turn to," Hodge, who suffers from an undiscoled illness, said in a report from Florida's WPTV.

Her request returned over 800 responses from around the world, one from a woman who lives just a few miles away in Palm Beach.

Stephanie Grant, 23, heard about Hodge's plight on the news and decided to step in, sacrificing her own healthy kidney and risking her own life in the process.
