Raleigh County WV -
Kinzley Robinson was born with liver failure with a slim chance of living.

Luckily, her second cousin, Mark Dick, was a match and showed no hesitation when asked to give a portion of his liver to save the three month old girls life. 

"It feels pretty good, the main thing is that I'm glad it worked out and everything is okay," he said.

Tuesday night the donors brother, Micheal Dick, put together a fundraiser to help the family with medical expenses.

The family says that Kinzley is doing much better and will be released soon and sent to the Ronald McDonald house and they hope to have her home by summer.

The fundraiser was held at Chic-Fil-A in the mall and all sales during the fundraiser were given to the family.
