Den unge Villarreal, der til dagligt arbejder som servitrice hos den dameglade fastfoodrestaurant Hoosters, mistede for nyligt sin bedstemor til en nyresygdom. Desværre matchede Villarreals nyre ikke til bedstemorens, hvorfor hun ikke kunne hjælpe kvinden, der døde.

Den 22-årige begyndte derfor at bede Gud om svar: Skulle hun i stedet donere en nye til en fremmed syg?

Samtidig startede hun sit arbejde som servitrice hos Hooters. Her mødte hun den 72-årige krigsveteran og enkemand Donald Thomas - kendt som 'The Don' blandt Hooters-pigerne.

The Don var to år forinden blevet nyresyg, og bad derfor hver til til Gud om, at han ville finde en doner, der ville hjælpe en mand af hans alder.

Det perfekte match var opstået.

Her ses de to sammen inden operationen. Venner for livet?

Today is the big day after 2 years of constant doctor visits my favorite hooters guest will finally get a chance at a normal life again. This is Donald Thomas or as all the girls at hooters know him "The DON!" He's been going to Roswell hooters for more than 10 years. He's a Vietnam war veteran, father of 2, His wife past away from breast cancer and a few years later he got kidney failure. After 3 months of working there and knowing him God answered my prayer but most important answered his prayer of years! I've been praying for God to answer me if donating one of my kidneys was the right thing to do and The Don was praying for a donor that may have never appeared. He sent me to this world to serve him and others and as a daughter of God I offered him one of my kidneys. Many people think I'm crazy because of the age difference but then again age is just a number, it's how young your heart is and your desire to live. Around the same time I met him my grandmother was going through something similar but I wasn't able to help her and it will forever be in my heart. My higher calling maybe wasn't for my grandma but for a complete stranger. NO he's not paying me for a kidney or tips me really good, just to clarify ! He's just an ordinary person with the desire to live a few more years. If he can live 2 more year the happiest he's ever been without having to sit in a room 3 times a week filtering his blood for 8 hours and finally have a full glass of water or finally get to pee again then go ahead take my kidney. I know God will give him way more years to come. All I ask is for prayers and for all of you to be thankful that you're healthy and alive because some people do have it worst! #godisgood

Her ses 22-årige Mariana Villarreal ses her før og efter operationen.



Her ses de to kort før de bliver udskrevet. Aldrig havde hospitalet set en nyre fungere så hurtigt efter en transplantation.


Villarreals arbejdsplads Hooters var også ude med en kommentar efter pigens rørende donation:


"Du er i sandhed til inspiration, Mariana", skriver de.
