Carlo Cecchetto, Anchor: In the meantime, a San Diego couple — this is a great story — has become the first in the nation to both donate their kidneys.
Barbara-Lee Edwards: Alexis and Charles Wesley each donated a kidney through the National Kidney Registry. Alexis underwent surgery at Sharp Memorial Tuesday. Her left kidney went to a stranger in New York.
Alexis Wesley, Altruistic Kidney Donor: This whole experience has been so empowering because usually when surgery crops up in someone's life it is a very passive thing, you're forced to do it and to choose a surgery and to choose to help someone — it's really rewarding and one of the most empowering things I've ever done.
Barbara-Lee: Alexis's surgery came 17 months after her husband donated his kidney to a total stranger. Their gifts will ultimately save 10 lives across the country.
