Jonah Lomu

A man by the name of Jonah Lomu played 63 games for the All Blacks. He was super fast and strong. But no-one would dare to tackle him if he had the ball. That made him a global superstar. But then in 2003 he had serious kidney problems.

With his blood being cleaned 3 times a week by dialysis, he had nerve damage in his feet and arms. In 2004, a radio station man named Grant Kereama, gave one of his kidneys to Jonah Lomu.

Then in 2005 he began a comeback. He went to Wales and Hong Kong, then to Wellington to play rugby again. Finally in 2007 he retired and lived his life.
