DENVER – The wait was short compared to most for Molly Wright, who made it off Colorado’s organ transplant waiting list when a stranger volunteered to donate a kidney.
“She said that her faith brought her there, and she talked to God, and it was what she was meant to do,” Wright said of Holly Ross, her kidney donor. Ross had worked with Wright’s mother at a church food bank, where Wright’s mom had passed out flyers about Molly’s need for a kidney. Ross took the flyer home, and two weeks later shared with Wright’s mother that she had passed the first test to donate a kidney to Molly. “And I just knew,” Ross said. “I knew God wanted me to do it. There was just such a peace. In my heart, I just, I knew this was something I was going to do.”
