Nanaimo mom gets a gift of life for Mother’s Day
Most mothers get a flower basket and taken out for breakfast by their kids on Mother’s Day, but one Nanaimo mom will get a life-saving gift from her son.
Peter Poole, also known as DJ All Good, is donating a kidney to his mother Vicki Poole, aka Ma Poole, whose health has deteriorated from progressive kidney failure.
Poole and his mother have undergone 18 months of testing at St. Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver to ensure he’s a compatible donor and that giving up his kidney won’t adversely affect his future health.
