“This time, it was his father, Ronald, who stepped in and after all the tests were completed, agreed to donate a kidney to his son,” Dr. Molmenti said. “We have never heard of a man receiving a kidney first from his wife, then from his father. What a testimony to the close bonds shared by this family. This father gave his son the most precious gift of all. It’s a beautiful story.”

The transplant took place on June 3, and after a three-day stay at North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset, Leonard and his father returned to the family home they share in Queens, just in time to celebrate a very special Father’s Day.

For his part, Ronald Burke said that his entire family is looking forward to spending this Father’s Day at home celebrating their good health and fortune.

“I think I did what any loving father would have done,” said the elder Mr. Burke. “To see my son so healthy, with his beautiful family, is the best gift I could ever ask for. We are a very lucky family,” he said.
