Woman's appeal for kidney donor on car window pays off

SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine (AP) -- A U.S. woman's unusual method of finding a kidney donor has paid off: She painted an appeal on the rear window of her car.

The Portland Press Herald (http://bit.ly/1BVLJ6I ) reports that Christine Royles of Maine was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease which led to kidney failure in December 2013.

She went on the national waiting list to find a donor, but decided to take matters into her own hands.

Josh Dall-Leighton, a 30-year-old a father of three, saw the message on Royles' car window, which included a phone number. He called.

The stranger has been classified as a potential match and the surgery is set for May.

Royles calls Josh's generosity "unbelievable."
