Wife donates kidney to husband

MEMPHIS, TN - It is an incredible story about couple who is a perfect match, in more ways than one.

Reverend Carl and Everlean Greer have been married for more than 40 years. They have been by each other's side through the ups and the downs. But, for the last two years, Carl has been on dialysis for three days a week. And, Carl needed a kidney transplant.

Carl says their prayers were answered the moment his wife was tested to see if they matched. They did.

"He always says, 'Since you got my rib, might as well have a kidney too,'" said Everlean Greer. "So sure enough I had the kidney too."

"I love my wife with all my heart," said Carl Greer. "I would have done the same for her."

The surgery was successful, and the Greers say they are looking forward to a speedy recovery and maybe even a vacation.
