Mary Beth and Bobby George have searched since May for a living kidney donor for their 4-year-old son, Daniel, who suffers from chronic kidney disease.

Little did the Pittsburgh family know how close to home a donor would be found.

Mary Beth George is a strength and conditioning coach at the University of Pittsburgh. Her colleague, athletic trainer Molly Trott, turned out to be a match.

Trott will donate a kidney to Daniel on Dec. 7, just a few weeks shy of his 5th birthday. The surgeries will be performed at UPMC Children’s Hospital in Lawrenceville.
