TUCSON, AZ - An 18-year old Tucson girl is getting ready to give a tremendous gift to an 18-month old boy, the gift of life.
Briana Delcampo decided to undergo tests to see if she was a match to be a kidney donor to the Isaiah.
She is a close friend of the family and witnessed firsthand their heartache as he has been in and out of hospitals his entire life.
"I want him to be able to do all the things I did," she said. "I want him to have a normal life."
She recently found out that she is a match and is now preparing for the transplant. It comes just as the boy was getting ready to have to start dialysis.
"We love her," said Isaiah's mom Terri. "She is part of the family."
Briana admits she is a bit nervous but is thankful for everyone who is supporting her and says her sacrifice is small compared to the life she can give this little boy.
