Daniella Neve of Pennsylvania, is one of the best softball players her age in the country and she likes to showcase her talents to her more than 80-thousand followers on TikTok. So when her dad Ryan Neve’s kidney failure started to make life difficult for him, Daniella decided to use her talents and her TikTok fans to find him a new kidney.
This summer, Daniella posted a video on TikTok looking for a kidney donor for her dad and it went viral. TV and radio stations across the country also picked up the story helping to get the word out and it worked. Ryan received word recently that a match had been found for him and he’s scheduled for transplant surgery just after the new year.
For the time being the donor has decided to remain anonymous, so the Neve’s don’t know who their savior is. But they say, whoever it is, they’re incredibly grateful. "It is the most selfless act that I could ever imagine someone could do," says Ryan. "They truly are my angel for doing this. It just brings tears to my eyes thinking about this because someone doesn't have to do that."
