PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The gift of life emerges from the Super Bowl battle between the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots.
Eagles fan Patricia Pizzimenti received a kidney from Patriots fan John Houlihan.
They met for the first time at Yale—New Haven Hospital in Connecticut on Wednesday.
Pizzimenti rewarded Houlihan with a t-shirt that read “Can you believe I gave a kidney to an Eagles fan?”
The transplant occurred on March 8, a month after the Eagles beat the Patriots in Super Bowl LII.
