Brothers document journey of kidney donations
Three Orange County siblings have taken the term "brotherly love" to a whole new level.
Doug Peifer donated a kidney to his brother Jeff on March 29. Seven years earlier, his brother Guy donated a kidney to Jeff as well. Unfortunately, that kidney failed due to complications from diabetes.
The trio, who are from Monroe, are documenting their journey to raise awareness of the need for organ donors. The brothers have compiled their photos and videos and posted them on YouTube.
They say there are 8,000 people in New York state on waiting lists for kidneys and that Jeff Peifer probably would have waited years to get one.
"What they've done for me, my immediate family - the quality of life they've given me. It's just amazing," says Jeff Peifer.
