CBC — A Sussex, N.B., father received an extraordinary gift from his son just in time for Father’s Day — a new kidney.
Arthur Cruickshank, 67, has diabetes and has been undergoing dialysis treatment for years. He lost one of his kidneys three years ago and had seen a rapid decline in his health.
His 39-year-old son Dana decided it was time to offer one of his own kidneys to his father.
“The dialysis was keeping him alive, but he didn’t have any quality of life and he was dying. There’s no doubt about it, he eventually would if he didn’t get a kidney,” Dana said.
