After years of waiting, Lucy Latino, a woman from Stouffville, Ontario, finally received a kidney donation from a stranger named Claire Yuricek. Latino had been diagnosed with a kidney disease called focal segmental glomerulosclerosis and had been on dialysis for the past three years. Her husband and daughter launched campaigns to find a suitable donor, with Yuricek eventually discovering the Instagram account set up for Latino. Tests confirmed Yuricek was a match, and the transplant was successfully performed by Dr. Markus Selzner at Toronto General Hospital. Both women are expected to recover relatively quickly from the surgery.
