A Man Shared His Liver to a Stranger as an Act of Kindness and Gets Her Heart in Return

A A A

Christopher Dempsey, a former marine, never thought that his decision to man up and save 27-year-old Heather Krueger would change his life forever.

One morning, Dempsey wandered into the break room and heard a sad story. Being the kind man that he is, he took pity at the woman, who, at the prime of her life is in the verge of death. Apparently, this young woman is having a hard time finding a live liver donor.

A man and a woman who have never met each other before that fateful day, had been connected by circumstances, and eventually bonded by fate.

As reported by The Washington Post, Dempsey decided to help in ways he can. So, that very day, he left work and scheduled an appointment to be tested.

To explain this strange act, Dempsey said,

“I just thought to myself, I would want someone to help me or my family in that situation.

“My mom was kind of nervous at first for me. Some people didn’t understand why I would do this for a stranger, but as time went on, people changed their tune and thought it was a cool thing I was doing.”

The test results came, bearing positive news for the very sick Krueger. With stage four liver cancer, Krueger’s chance to survive is slim, but with Dempsey’s donation, her chance has increased!

Krueger shared,

“I had never even met this man before.”

A few days after the confirmed match, the two met for lunch and Dempsey decided to help raise funds for her medical bills as well.

As they were discussing the fundraiser, however, a relationship, a special bond began to form. Dempsey started seeing Krueger as a potential person to love, but did not want her to feel indebted to him.


Krueger was thinking,

“It was kind of like, we do have this special bond, but is this just because I’m sick that I’m feeling this way? You had to kind of separate that, but after the surgery, I realized it went beyond that.”

Dempsey and Krueger donned the hospital gown, to share Dempsey's liver.

The operation was a success. Nine months after the operation to share Dempsey’s liver, they took a romantic ride and Dempsey proposed.

Dempsey said,

“I never would have thought in a million years when I agreed to all this that I would marry her. It is amazing.”

Dempsey and Krueger tied the knot.

Theirs is a love story with unexpected beginning and a sweet ever after. It was, at first, just a simple act of kindness.

Backpacker Forced to Deny He’s Jesus After Being Mistaken in Kenya

One even said that the Australian should be crucified so he could rise again — which is, undoubtedly, alarming for the traveler.

An Australian man has been backpacking around Kenya for two weeks and now people insist that he is Jesus. You might see why you can’t blame people for thinking that. Daniel Christos does look like the Messiah and people are convinced that he is.

Christos goes barefoot, he wears a robe, has a thick beard and long hair -- just how Jesus is mostly portrayed in pictures.

The backpacker gets constantly mobbed by fans for looking like Christ and because of that, Daniel has taken to Facebook to deny that he is the Son of God. He admitted that life as a traveler has become challenging ever since locals think how much he looks like Jesus. People have gone as far as taking pictures and videos of him every day and captioning it with #JesusinNairobi. The hashtag is there to help people track the “Messiah’s” whereabouts.

Karaoke In Cambodia Is Possibly The Most Absurd Karaoke Game Ever

Live frogs, snakes, and other reptiles are dumped while a singer attempts to finish a song.

How do you give a new spin to classic karaoke contests? Well you mix it in with some crazy concepts and you’re good to go. In Japan, for instance, a game show went with the strange idea where male karaoke singers are given hand jobs by pretty ladies while they sing.

Meanwhile in Cambodia, another television show came up with something they called Killer Karaoke Cambodia and its name is as brutal as the game actually is. In the said game, a contestant will have to sing a song while strapped in a seat and then live animals – such as frogs and snakes – will be dumped during the performance as the singer attempts to finish the entire song.

Sounds insane, you say? It totally is and you have to see it for yourself.
