St. Louis Anchor to Get Kidney Transplant

By Kevin Eck 

KSDK anchor Anne Allred is getting a new kidney.

In a two minute Facebook video, Allred tells viewers she’s taking some time off from the St. Louis NBC affiliate to receive what she says is a “very priceless gift” from a high school friend whom she called “an amazing and selfless person” for donating his kidney.

We reported in August, Allred has a rare kidney disease which was caused by her recent pregnancy.
