NFL Player Gave Up Career to Save Brother’s Life
For two brothers in the NFL, sacrificing their careers wasn’t an easy step but it was the right thing to do.
Christopher and Ma’ake Kemoeatu, Tonga, both former Super Bowl champions, ended their NFL careers so that Chris could have a life-saving kidney transplant. Chris, 31, had been battling kidney disease that developed from a childhood illness. Ma’ake, 35, underwent kidney transplant surgery in August so that he could give one of his kidneys to Chris.
