Two sisters give life to brother: Lake Lillian man to receive second kidney transplant
WILLMAR — When he was a kid, Jim Thompson sparred plenty with his two sisters. It was a typical brother-sister relationship.
But life-giving sacrifices have changed those relationships.
In 1998 Thompson's oldest sister gave him a kidney in a transplant operation that has kept him off dialysis for 15 years.
Now Thompson's youngest sister will give him one of her kidneys in an operation scheduled for Aug. 27 that could extend his health for another decade or two.
