It is easy to be moved by the story of Everson Walls and Ron Springs. The two friends and former Dallas Cowboys teammates have shared many things, most recently a kidney, which Walls gave to Springs.
Their story, chronicled in last week’s USAToday, is one of friendship and selflessness. Springs, a type 2 diabetic, had been suffering, and waiting, for years before his old friend realized he had the same blood type and was a suitable donor.
