Michigan

GRAND LEDGE, Mich. (WLNS) — A woman in Grand Ledge has a message for you this Thanksgiving season: Give thanks and sign up to be an organ donor.

A few days later she learned it was much, much worse. And then, just over a week later, doctors in Ann Arbor told her she couldn’t survive without a life-saving operation.

6 News anchor Chivon Kloepfer tells us what happens next. It’s a story that can only be described as a ‘Thanksgiving miracle.’
