While Harding may have been a complete stranger who lived more than 1,500 miles away, she was compelled to do what she could to help save the 2-year-old girl's life. That's why, on May 7, the 37-year-old will travel to Minneapolis to donate one of her kidneys to Arianna, WKRN-TV reported.
Diagnosed with diffuse mesangial sclerosis shortly after birth, Arianna has undergone dialysis for about 10 hours a day, every day, for the past two years. Though her kidneys failed when Arianna was about 7 weeks old, none of the potential donors, including Arianna's blood relatives, were a match. So Arianna's family turned to social media to share her plight.
Now, nearly two years later, Harding has answered their call and offered up her own kidney for donation.
