Police inspector in Abbotsford, B.C., to donate kidney to fellow officer (St. Paul's Hospital)
Forget about a million-dollar jackpot. A British Columbia police detective says he’s won the lottery on life after one of his supervisors volunteered to give him a kidney.
Det. Roy McBeth of the Abbotsford Police Department is gearing up for transplant surgery on Wednesday alongside his coworker and organ donor Insp. Kevin Wright.
With the surgery scheduled for the middle of the week, McBeth said he anticipates spending about seven days in St. Paul’s Hospital, followed by a six-to-eight-week recovery period.
