KANSAS CITY, Kansas -- It's a Valentine's gift that's a perfect match.

A 32-year-old woman gave her boyfriend a kidney for Valentine's Day - this is also National Donor Day.

Taesha Benson and her boyfriend Travis Spire-Sweet underwent surgery at the University of Kansas Hospital so she could give him her kidney. Travis has been battling kidney problems since birth, living with only 24 percent of kidney function.

After spending a year on a donor list, his girlfriend turned out to be a perfect match.
