The Best Valentine's Gift

By Krista Belles

Wife gives husband kidney for Valentine`s Day

Byron Hamilton, a 57 year old dairy farmer from Olean, NY, was told by his doctors in September that after years of battling kidney disease, he is now in need of either a transplant or dialysis.

Hamilton`s wife, Pearl, is to be his donor. The operation is scheduled to take place at Erie County Medical Center on Valentine`s Day.

According to Pearl, the only thing that matters is that her husband is well.
