After coming on air with the Big Tigger Morning Show in May of 2021, Willie Blackwell received a kidney he longed for in April of 2022. He says he made a promise to God that if he received a kidney, he would pay it forward for someone else. He’s now helping Assistant Principal Leon Hammond at McIntosh High School receive a kidney after being diagnosed with kidney disease 13 years ago at the age of 25. The two join the show to tell listeners how they can help.
