Texas Elementary School Teacher Donates Kidney to Father of Student [VIDEO]

    A kindergarten teacher, Marie Bell, became a life-saver this week after she donated a kidney to the father of one of her students.

    “I didn’t think that God made people like her anymore,” said 50-year-old Marshall Smith, the recipient of the kidney. Smith was on dialysis for two years before Bell was found to be a match.

    Bell, who lives in Lewisville, TX., is the teacher of Smith’s son — 5-year-old Sean. One day, when Sean was late for school, his mother wrote a note explaining that the family had been in the hospital.
    “That was the first I’d known that Marshall was on dialysis,” Bell said.
    Immediately, she wanted to help.
    “How could I look at that little boy, in his eyes every day — greet him as his caregiver, teacher, as his educator and as a mother and know that I didn’t try?” she asked.
    After calling the local kidney donor program, she underwent a series of tests. Incredibly, Marie Bell and Marshall Smith were a perfect match.
