She shared her own emotional Instagram in Mar. when she learned of her transplant date.
“I’m so excited to get this kidney transplant!!! I have been waiting for this day to come for a long time… My donor is a dream come true, such an amazing guy, so kind, he blows me away everyday! Three years ago he heard people where getting checked and he called, but he kept calling and going in and getting tested!” Bijou wrote about her donor. Danny shared his own gratitude at the end of his Instagram, “Our deepest gratitude to a perfect transplant team. And a life owed to a tall drink of water. Sláinte!”
