TIFTON, GA (WALB) - A Tifton woman who is becoming a live donor has inspired others to do the same.

26-year-old Jessica Hall originally wanted to donate to a 7-year-old Atlanta girl who asked Santa for a kidney for Christmas.

Hall could not donate to her, but she is now testing to be able to help another woman.

Hall's two sisters are now also being tested to be able to donate their kidneys to others awaiting transplants.

Everyday 17 people die waiting for an organ transplant. They hope they inspire others to become live donors.
