(08/11/10) WILLIAMSBURG - A mother and father who are both educators in Brooklyn were reunited today with the doctors who helped save the lives of their twin sons.
Brian and Alan DeVale were both born with a rare kidney disease and were in need of transplants.
Their father, Brian, the principal at P.S. 157, donated his kidney to his son Alan last year.
His wife, Evette Leavy, is a guidance counselor at I.S. 318 and recently donated her kidney to her son Brian. She said she needed to get herself in shape for the surgery. Leavy says a former student went through a similar process and "coached" her to help her get ready. The parents say both children are now healthy.
They say they are very happy they were able to help since many families in similar situations are not.
