[Marine Sgt. Craig] Santos, an Air Control Squadron 2 aviation supply specialist at the base in Beaufort, had tried Twitter and Craigslist and gotten nothing. He was running out of time. Angela was getting weaker.
Santos put an ad for a kidney donor on a website called beaufortyardsales.com.
Cpl. Stephanie St. Laurent, a Fighter Attack Squadron 533 jet mechanic, saw the ad and stepped forward.
“A Marine was helpless,” she said after the operation. “His wife was dying and he needed help.”
