Just last month, The National Kidney registry completed the nation’s longest multi-hospital kidney transplant chain ever, where 34 kidneys were swapped between 26 different hospitals nationwide over the course of three months. NIGHTLINE is there on the final day, following the final links in what surgeons have called a “chain of love.” In order to complete the incredible life-saving feat, it will require eight surgeons, a team of transporters, and rigorous precision to link five hospitals in four states. “Nightline” co-Anchor Byron Pitts reports on the Tuesday, April 14 late night broadcast. NIGHTLINE airs at 12:35 AM ET on the ABC Television Network.
