‘I’d like her to stick around’: Alaska Air pilot to donate kidney to flight attendant

There are the normal things co-workers do to show caring for each other — covering a shift when there’s a family emergency, delivering soup to a colleague with a cold, bringing in treats to celebrate a special occasion. And then there is undergoing major surgery to have a kidney removed to be transplanted into a co-worker to save her life. That is what Alaska Airlines Capt. Jodi Harskamp is doing for Flight Attendant Jenny Stansel. Harskamp will undergo surgery on March 13 and, with a successful transplant, give Stansel a new lease on life.  Harskamp was one of many employees who had volunteered to be tested to find out if they would be a match for Stansel. Both women are blood type O-positive, and turned out to be a perfect match — and the only match of those who volunteered. Kudos.
