Mother Of South Carolina Organ Donor Meets Her Son’S Kidney Recipient

TODAY. TOMORROW MORNING, STARTING AT 4:30 A.M. NEW AT SIX. AN UPSTATE MOTHER LOSES HER SON, BUT HE LEFT BEHIND THE GIFT OF LIFE. SHE WAS RECENTLY ABLE TO MEET ONE OF THE ORGAN RECIPIENTS. A RASHAD WILLIAMS HAS THE STORY YOU’LL SEE ONLY ON WYFF NEWS FOUR. B.J. WAS A VERY HUMBLE GENTLEMAN.

AS A MOTHER WHO LOVED HER CHILD, KAY DORSEY SAYS HER SON, B.J. SIGAFOOS, WAS HER ROCK, FUN, FUNNY AS ALL GET OUT. HE LOVED TO RIDE MOTORCYCLES. HE IS A GEORGIA BULLDOG FAN ALL THE WAY. WOULD GIVE MAMA A HARD TIME WHEN IT CAME TO CAROLINA VERSUS GEORGIA.

THE 26 YEAR OLD WAS HIT BY ANOTHER VEHICLE WHILE RIDING HIS MOTORCYCLE IN JANUARY OF LAST YEAR, AND DIED DAYS LATER IN THE HOSPITAL. PERHAPS THIS IS THE MOMENT FOR WHICH HE WAS CREATED. GOD ONLY LOANS THEM TO US FOR A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME. THE BUMBLEBEE STORY KAY CALLED

BJ HABIBIE, ALTHOUGH BJ HAS LEFT THE HIVE AND IS NO LONGER HERE, SOMETIMES FULFILLING OUR LIFE’S PURPOSE HAPPENS AFTER WE’RE GONE. BJ WAS AN ORGAN DONOR, A LIFE WAS LOST, BUT SEVERAL OTHER LIVES WERE ABLE TO GO ON IN A TIME THAT HE WOULD NOT NO LONGER NEED THOSE ORGANS THAT SOMEBODY

ELSE COULD WATCH THEIR GRANDKIDS PLAY BASEBALL TO WATCH THEIR CHILDREN GROW UP AND TO FULFILL SOME MORE LIFE DREAMS AND FOR THE FAMILY WHO SHARES THE LEGACY OF OUR HERO TODAY, HE MADE HIS HONOR WALK AND HE WAS ABLE TO DONATE HIS HEART, HIS KIDNEYS AND HIS LIVER TO FOUR DIFFERENT

INDIVIDUALS ACROSS THE SOUTHEAST POLYCYSTIC KIDNEY DISEASE AT LIVINGSTON LIVES IN CHARLOTTE. SHE WAS ON DIALYSIS FOR NINE MONTHS AND NEEDED A NEW KIDNEY. BJ’S RIGHT KIDNEY WAS A PERFECT MATCH. SO YOU DON’T REALIZE HOW SICK YOU ARE UNTIL YOU GET THE TRANSPLANT. AND THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN IT’S

LIKE, WOW, I CAN’T BELIEVE HOW GREAT I FEEL, AND I CAN’T BELIEVE HOW LONG I FELT AWFUL. MICHELLE AND KAY WERE ABLE TO MEET FACE TO FACE THIS YEAR. IT WAS SPECIAL, ALLOWING KAY TO MAINTAIN A LIFELONG PROMISE SHE MADE TO HER SON. I PROMISED HIM WHEN HE WAS AT

THE HOSPITAL THAT HE WOULD NEVER BECOME HE WAS, THAT HE WOULD ALWAYS BE AND IS. SO I TELL HIM, FOREVER. YOU WILL ALWAYS BE MY IS BECAUSE WAS HIS GET FORGOTTEN AND HE WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN. IN B
