A life-saving Valentine’s Day story at Hartford Hospital.

A husband donated a kidney to his wife who had been diagnosed with kidney disease. The transplant surgery took place at Hartford Hospital for nearly six hours on Wednesday and both are doing well reports the Hartford Courant.

Jorge Altamirano, 42, was a perfect match for wife Neidi Maldonado, 37. The Torrington couple have been married for 16 years and have two children – a 15-year-old son and 12-year-old daughter.
