Special report: Inspiring duo, selfless friendship


CENTRAL WISCONSIN (WAOW) -- Many of us spend our lives searching for that perfect match. For one central Wisconsin woman, that search was a matter of life or death.

Susan Jilk suffers from a rare form of bile duct cancer. She needed a new liver to survive, but time was running out. That is, until a perfect stranger stepped in and saved her life.

"I couldn't believe it at first. I thought, I'm not deserving of anyone putting their life on the line," said Jilk.

Coming up Thursday night on Newsline 9 at 10:00, meet this incredible woman and the person that saved her life. It's an amazing story of selflessness and friendship. It's what makes this inspiring duo Someone You Should Know.
