Nine-year-old Kelsey Beck was diagnosed with kidney failure in 2017, and when her parents were told she would need a kidney transplant, they both immediately got tested to see if they were a match. It turns out her mother Kristin was, and in this truly heartwarming video, we see the process of Kristin donating her kidney to her daughter result in success. They say there are few things stronger than a mother's love, and this video is such a beautiful testament to that.
