Report: Through Facebook, North Reading Man Finds Kidney Transplant Match

WBZ has the story of how Eddie Beatrice found through Facebook someone willing to donate her kidney.

North Reading resident Eddie Beatrice is scheduled to receive a kidney transplant on April 2, after finding a donor through a Facebook post of all places, WBZ reports.

Beatrice had left rotator cuff surgery in October 2011 and contracted a bacterial infection that ultimately shut down his kidneys, WBZ reports, requiring the transplant.

While researching kidney transplants online, he came across a post by Kelly Wright on the Living Kidney Donor Network Facebook page, in which Wright said she was donating her kidney to an anonymous recipient, WBZ reports.
