This summer Sally-Ann had a story about Johnny Kennedy who had deteriorating kidney disease, and Justin Kennedy volunteered to donate one of his kidneys to his brother.

The kidney transplant was performed in July, and for Thanksgiving, Sally-Ann returned to their well known Mid-City restaurant to see what they're thankful for - the gift of life.

There are more than 1,700 people in Louisiana who are waiting for a life saving organ transplant according to the Louisiana Organ Procurement Agency. For information about joining the organ registry visit their web site by clicking here.
