Glenn Calderbank is giving the gift of life after stumbling on a Craigslist posting.

The 49-year-old New Jersey man is preparing to donate his kidney to a woman who would die without it -- someone who until very recently was a total stranger.

"I think this is very important," he told CBS Philadelphia. "So important, I'm risking my life for it. I can save somebody."

Sadly, I read that this donation was cancelled due to donor health issues.
