New interactive feature: Untold Stories

From a reader:

The story of two coworkers: a kidney donor - the recipient - and a life saving sacrifice. This article about two women in Seattle was sent by an anonymous reader as one of the Untold Stories that gets buried in the (often sensational) news.

"Gaeb, who expects to go back to work in July, said Jenkins' gift frees her from dialysis. That gives her 17 more hours of free time each week, she said, time that she can spend with a grandchild.

What kind of a person voluntarily interrupts her own life to save someone else's? How was it that Jenkins didn't do what so many of us do each day -- get so involved in our own lives, problems and activities that we turn our backs and hope someone else will take action?"
