>Wake Forest baseball coach donates kidney
February 10, 2011Posted by on
>Wake Forest baseball coach Tom Walter donated a kidney to a freshman player who suffers from a disease that can lead to kidney failure. Both Walter and outfielder Kevin Jordan were recovering Tuesday in an Atlanta hospital one day after the transplant.
“It’s almost like it’s been divine intervention,” Jordan’s father Keith said.
Walter said the “best-case scenario is that Kevin and I just lead a normal life” but added that the great story will come when Jordan “makes it back to the playing field.”
Jordan was diagnosed last April with ANCA vasculitis. Walter was tested in December after it was determined that Jordan’s relatives weren’t compatible for a transplant. Walter found out Jan. 28 that he was a match.
