Teen to give her brother a kidney

By Kate Darnell

Amber Campbell, 18, will spend her holiday season giving to others.

Among the presents she’s bought and wrapped for friends and family, Amber is also giving a very unique gift.

She will give her brother,  Corey, 19, one of her kidneys on Dec. 29.

In May 2007, Corey was diagnosed with a rare form of kidney disease.

When doctors began searching for a kidney donor, Amber became determined to save her brother’s life.

“From the day of his diagnosis, Amber said she wanted to do it,” Amber and Corey’s mom Jennifer said.
