Did you know that these 10 celebrities have had organ transplant
7 Alonzo Mourning
Former NBA star Alonzo Mourning was a rising star in the basketball world when in 2003 he had to suddenly step away from the court due to segmental glomerulosclerosis, a disorder that affects kidneys.
Mourning had choices of undergoing a transplant or keeps getting dialysis at least three days every week for many years to come. Fortunately his cousin Jason Cooper, who the star hadn’t seen or met in 25 years, came to know about his health condition and tested in order to find out if they were a suitable match. Thankfully they were and he donated one kidney to Alonzo.
Alonzo returned to the court in 2006 and won the NBA title with Miami Heat.
