Brother Gives The Gift of Life

This Christmas is a special one for two local brothers - one has given the other the gift of life.

Nearly five years ago Oscar Paniagua-Morales was told that his kidney was failing and he would need a new one in order to survive.

After years of dialysis and testing - Oscar's brother Hector was able to give his brother one of his kidneys just a couple of months ago.

The brothers say this Christmas is the most special because Oscar is still around to celebrate with his family.

Oscar and Hector want to thank the community for its support and help while they were raising money for the surgery.
