During the two years they were dating, a Mr Paul Duncan and a Ms Rebecca Morrice must have at some point thought they were a good match. Little did they know that, despite their relationship ending in 2009, they were in fact the perfect match. Not just because they remained good friends after their split but because when Mr Duncan suffered kidney failure which required him to undergo a transplant, it was Ms Morrice’s organ that was found to be the best fit. Not only that, but the 30 year old from Aberdeen had no qualms about offering her ex one of her kidneys. Ms Morrice, who works as a field service engineer for an oil company, explains: “I wasn’t fully aware of how severe Paul’s condition was until I visited him in hospital. I knew I wanted to get tested from that moment on, and that never wavered. One of my great friends was in need, and I kept thinking what if it was one of my family. For that reason, it was a no brainer and probably one of the easiest decisions I ever made.” Thank goodness Mr Duncan stayed on such good terms with his ex girlfriend, for after his kidneys failed, the fitness instructor, who also suffers from cystic fibrosis was barely able to walk up stairs and had to be hooked up to dialysis machines. Not anymore. Thanks to Ms Morrice and the skilled medical team at the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh, Mr Duncan is back in the gym and getting stronger by the day. As Mr Duncan from Torphins, Aberdeenshire, said: “the kidney failure was really hard to deal with. I went from being fit and active, to struggling to get up the stairs to my flat and having no quality of life. Rebecca saved my life and I can’t put into words what it is she’s done for me. Nothing I could ever do in the rest of my lifetime could repay her enough. She was so laid back through the whole process, nothing phased her at all which helped me through it. What she did for me, and my family, was quite simply amazing.” How about that for an Ex-cellent story?
