Lynchburg Man Makes Recovery After Receiving Kidney From Afghan Soldier

Posted:
Lynchburg, VA - Neil Rommel, the Lynchburg man that needed a kidney transplant, is home and recovering after a successful transplant surgery.  On June 10th, Rommel went under the knife at VCU Hospital in Richmond.

His donor was a stranger, 27-year-old Afghan War veteran Dan Webb, from Utah.  Webb responded to a Facebook post Rommel’s daughter had made to solicit a donor for her father who suffers from a rare autoimmune disease. Doctors had told him that a kidney transplant would be necessary to save his life.  The two met for the first time a few weeks ago and both are expected to make a full recovery.
