Dad Could Give Gift Of Life To Daughter (from South Wales Argus)
VALLEYS dad David Tilley is preparing to give the ultimate gift of life to his teenage daughter.
Mr Tilley, of Waunheulog, Nantyglo, has offered to donate a kidney to 14-year-old daughter Danielle, and needs to pass a final test before he can be approved for the operation.
The family was shocked when doctors said Danielle had suffered complete kidney failure after falling ill a year ago.
Mr Tilley said: "She was feeling unwell but there was nothing to say she was that bad. It came on so quickly.
"We went to Nevill Hall hospital and they said it was worse than we thought. She had a blood test and they said her kidneys weren't working.
"It was a big shock."
