Trey and Sara Wiggins received some attention from Fox-5 News yesterday spotlighting their attempt to find their grandmother a kidney.

The Atlanta news station visited with the family and aired the spot on Wednesday night’s 10:00 p.m. news broadcast. Beverly Wiggins, the grandmother of Trey and Sara told Trevor Shirley she could hardly believe what her grandchildren were doing.

“It’s just unimaginable that they came up with it and thought enough of me to try to help me find me a kidney,” Wiggins said. “I know they love me, but I just didn’t know to the degree. My kidneys are down to about 9 percent function and I do dialysis three days a week.” The two Heard County students have also started a facebook page entitled “Kidney for Gran.”
