A man in Stickney is giving thanks today, to his brother for giving him a second chance at life.

73-year-old Jesse Aguilar found out last year that both of his kidneys were failing.

He has been on dialysis since, waiting for a kidney donation.

That came through this week, when his younger brother Steve gave Aguilar one of his.

They were a match, even though the two men have a different father.
