Amanda Hayhurst saw the flyer that would change her life — and save the life of another — as she and her younger son waited for her eldest son to finish taekwondo class.
The flyer told the story of Vonchelle Knight, a 50-year-old single mother of two, who had been searching for a kidney donor for eight years.
One of Knight’s daughters, Courtney Knight, 29, worked at the studio and posted the flyer for her mom.
“Typically I would never read a flyer like that but it pulled me in,” Hayhurst, 32, said. “I knew before I finished reading that we were going to be a match. I just knew it.”
Hayhurst, of Decatur, Georgia, did not know anything about the kidney transplant process but thought, “If not me, who? She is on this list and none of her friends and family are a match.”
