10 months after ups and downs, a 21-year-old man is on the road to recovery thanks to a donation from his mother's life. Harley Brackney was snowboarding on January 2, when EMT noticed him sliding on the mountain on his back.

According to the GoFundMe page created on his behalf, computed tomography showed that Brackney suffered a fit and the fall caused a brain hemorrhage. The doctors then unexpectedly discovered that he was in stage 5 renal failure. The following months saw him go through dialysis and start searching for a kidney.
About three months ago, the Brackney family at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center reported that his mother, Joy, was a donor match. On October 30, the couple underwent a successful transplant operation just before their 21st birthday.
