Mariana Villarreal is one extremely generous waitress.
This probably isn’t the first time a Hooters waitress has given a gift that keeps on giving…
However, on this occasion, the offering was something that Don Thomas really needed.
Don has been a regular at the Roswell, Georgia Hooters restaurant for years. Like most customers, I’m sure he goes there for the 5-star cuisine.
Sadly, Don’s days at Hooters appeared to be numbered as he had lost both of his kidneys to cancer. Imagine his surprise when waitress Mariana Villarreal offered him one of hers.
“Mariana had only been here a short time. I just barely knew her when she made the offer.”
Mariana’s grandmother had recently died from kidney failure.
“I wasn’t able to do anything for my grandma. If [Don] can live two more years, happy as he’s ever been, that’s fine with me. That’s not up to me. I did my part, now it’s God’s turn to keep him alive.”
A person can lead a full and healthy life with just one kidney. Don and Mariana’s surgeries were scheduled for today. We wish them both the best.
Don Thomas… the lucky kidney recipient.
