SHAWVILLE, CLEARFIELD COUNTY - Mandy Perry found out she was a match for her uncle who needed a kidney transplant and when she got the news she says she realized it was her duty to do it.

On January 2, the surgery took place and everything went well.

Her uncle, former marine Vince Dixon, is now back in the hospital. There is a chance they will have to do a biopsy on the new kidney.

His community is supporting he and his recovery by hosting a benefit spaghetti dinner, auction and craft show at the Clearfield Alliance Christian School on Saturday January 25 from 3:00pm until 7:00pm.
