Siblings live outside the touch of time sharing a very special bond that outsiders may never understand. That's especially the case for Brandon Nelson, who took it upon himself to give the gift of life.
At 32–years–old, Brandon is in pretty good shape. Staying active and operating heavy equipment at Aurora Coop would leave anyone believing that he was nothing more than normal, but that is far from the truth.
"I took it upon myself and went into the Aurora Clinic and got my blood tested to see what blood type I was," Brandon said.
And it was that sound decision that determined the steps to follow.
At 15, Brandon sister, Brooke, was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease that turned her liver into scar tissue.
The doctor told her she was a ticking time bomb.
After years in and out of remission, she was finally listed in 2008 to receive a new liver. Four years later, a perfect donor was found, her very own brother, Brandon.
Without hesitation, Brandon seized the opportunity to save his sister's life, a true testament of brotherly love.
