Folsom Police Sgt. Eric Baade, left, and Sacramento Sheriff’s Deputy Nathan Wise, right, walk into a news conference in Folsom, Calif., on July 7, 2016, to discuss the kidney Baade donated to Wise. The pair had never met when Baade saw a January Facebook post by Wise’s wife explaining their need for a kidney transplant. He responded within 24 hours. Baade’s decision was inspired in part because his wife, Stacy, had received a kidney donation in 2008.
