August 31, 2009...
On the Extra Mile America Tour event in Des Moines today, I met a guy named Ted Cochran.
At age 28, his mother donated a kidney to Ted and gave him life...again.
If that were the end of the story, it would be a cool story.
But it's not the end.
Ted did something more.
He started an organization called "My Angel Foundation" to help other families going through the donor process as well as to encourage donor registrants. Today, this organization has helped register thousands of potential donors on Iowa.
Only later does the reason for some things in life truly reveal themselves.
