Going Viral for a Kidney
“Let’s take this picture and make it go viral,” said Brandy to her friend Kristi. Little did they know just how successful that campaign would be. Kristi Callaway told her long-time friend Brandy Angel that her husband was in need of a kidney and they came up with a plan to start looking beyond their immediate group of friends and family. Raleigh Callaway, the police officer who had kept quiet about his failing kidneys, suddenly found himself in the middle of a social media whirlwind. Listen to how these friends teamed up to make it happen and how they plan to help others through what they’ve learned.
