Sibling rivalries happen is many families, but a brother and sister in Texas "teamed up" to fight a health crisis. And tonight, they're celebrating life. Taylor Parrott and her brother Casey have always supported each other. Taylor Parrott, kidney donor:"i think just because we've always been so close, we've always shared a very unique and special bond."that bond has been strengthened over the years as casey struggled with a rare birth defect that has causes his kidney failure. casey's father donated a kidney several years ago... but last year that kidney failed too... that's when taylor stepped in. Casey Parrott, kidney recipient:"it was really tough. it was really tough." She was tested to be a kidney donor and was a match. But Casey wasn't so sure he could accept. Casey Parrott, kidney recipient:"i didn't want to tell anybody. but i was mad about it. i didn't want to put my sister through this. i didn't want to feel greedy. here i am, i need another kidney, was i up for the challenge? it was really tough." But they had that transplant, and now...
Casey Parrott, kidney recipient:"i feel better than i've ever felt." And his sister is proud to be part of his extraordinary new year.
