(CNN) – An 84-year-old Texas man is now the oldest living kidney donor in the United States.
Frank Dewhurst was out for a walk in his Austin neighborhood when he saw a sign: “I am type O and I need a kidney transplant. Please help me.”
He was a match, so he decided to donate.
A doctor said Dewhurst was an ideal candidate since he was active and not on any medications.
The procedure went well and now 72-year-old Linda Nall has a new kidney.
Both Nall and Dewhurst are doing great.
Dewhurst said he hopes others who are healthy will also donate, no matter how old they are.
