Greta Perske met Tony Hokanson four years ago through mutual friends.

She was on a bone marrow transplant waiting list when a miracle happened.

Daniels was her match.

After losing someone special in his life, the 51-year-old man and his wife signed up to donate.

Today, Perske credits Daniels’ act of kindness not only with her life but also her calling — she decided to become a nurse when she learned what he’d done for her.

She recalled her thought process to the St. Cloud Times: “I want to help save lives, too. I want to give back.”

Even though they’d only met once before, it’s easy to understand the incredible bond Perske and Daniels share with one another. And it’s no wonder everyone was in tears…and gave the bone marrow donor a standing ovation when he was announced at the reception!
