Jez Williams is donating a kidney to an unknown recipient on Monday so that his wife can receive a kidney in return. Karen Williams has been on dialysis for 12 years after her kidneys failed.
No match has been found for her on the transplant list but now a living donor has offered their kidney. The terms of the donation are that someone has to donate a kidney in return and Karen's husband Jez immediately agreed.
