Daughter to donate kidney to her mother


Follow The Republic:


An Edinburgh woman will have life-saving surgery Wednesday, receiving a kidney from the daughter she gave life to 56 years ago.

Anna Rhoades was diagnosed with stage-5 renal disease in 2003. The kidney transplant is crucial to the 74-year-old's survival.

Diana Boggs, Rhoades' daughter, was identified as a perfect donor match. A kidney, Boggs said, is a small price to pay to help her mother.

"She gave me life," Boggs said. "I can give up a kidney."
