This Woman’s Life-Saving Birthday Gift To Her Sick GF Is So Insanely Sweet It’s Making Everyone Cry

It’s hard to watch the people you love struggle with a sickness of any kind, especially when there isn’t a lot you can do to help. But this woman found a way to give her ill girlfriend the birthday present of a lifetime — quite literally.

Things had been tough for Lori’s girlfriend, who needed a kidney to survive but didn’t have a match. So to make her feel better, Lori presented her girlfriend with a package full of her favorite things — redvines, gel pens, fun little games.
