Strangers become best friends through kidney donation
A Facebook post and an organ donation led to a lifetime friendship between two complete strangers.

Breanna Sipple and Erin Francis aren't just best friends.

They are 'Team Be More,' with an Instagram page that's a virtual meeting place for people who've received transplants, those looking for donors, and donor awareness.

It was all driven by Breanna's extraordinary gift to Erin - a kidney.

The two were strangers until Breanna saw a Facebook post by Erin's husband, detailing the disease which damaged her kidney, and looking for a donor for Erin.

Breanna felt connected to Erin's story so she decided to donate her kidney and they have been best friends ever since.
