Lori Interlicchio filmed the moment she surprised her girlfriend, Alana Duran, with the news that she is a kidney match for Alana. Lori gave her a series of gifts with fun hints before Alana discovered the big news. They met because of a match on Tinder, so this has to be one of the greatest Tinder success stories of all time. Interestingly enough, it's not the first story about an organ donation due to Tinder. Generally people worry about waking up in a bathtub of ice after having their organs stolen by a psycho from Tinder. It's not an unwarranted fear, as Tinder is often full of nut jobs.

Lori couldn't wait for her to find the big reveal, which was stalled because she kept giving her sweet and fantastic gifts:

I wanted her to hurry up and get to the bottom, but she was so appreciative of every single item I bought. She talked about the Star Wars band aids for like 20 seconds.

The final gift was a small poster of a mock Tinder match with a bit of a twist:

It’s a match! You and Lori have no antibodies against each other”.

It's a Match!

As most of you know I was diagnosed with Lupus at the age of 12. Lupus is an autoimmune disease where my body's immune system is overactive and it starts to attack different parts of my body; thinking that my body is a foreign invader. In my case my Lupus was very active when I was younger resulting in a hip replacement, going into congestive heart failure, getting a pacemaker implanted, going into kidney failure and ultimately going on dialysis. I've been waiting patiently for a kidney since 2011. It's been 4 years and no luck yet UNTIL a little while back my wonderfully amazing girlfriend Lori Interlicchio went and got tested to see if she was a match to donate a kidney to me. It turns out she is! Who knew that when we both swiped right on Tinder that day, that we would be more than just girlfriends but that she would be my kidney donor! It's so funny how things work out. Both of us going into this relationship not expecting anything out of the ordinary. It's just so amazing to me that she was willing to get tested and now she's super excited to donate one of her kidneys to me. Lori, I love you so much and I'm so excited that we get to do this together. You're the absolute best. WATCH TILL THE VERY END! :)

There's nothing better than dating someone who is a creative at giving gifts. And it's a life-saving bonus if that special someone is also a matchable organ donor. Hopefully the future is a healthy one for both Alana and Lori.
