Brenda Jones, a 69-year-old, had spent a long year on the donor list waiting for a liver. Then, on July 18, a hospital in North Texas called – they had a suitable liver for her. Meanwhile, 23-year-old Abigail Flores also needed a liver. Her situation was more urgent than Jones’. Without a transplant, doctors believed Flores only had 24 hours to live. Therefore, they asked Jones to give up her spot so that Flores could receive the precious organ. Jones agreed. “In my heart, I wouldn’t have been able to live with the liver if I had let this little girl die,” she told WFAA. Jones was placed back on top of the donor list and received a new liver just five days later.
