ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - If you've never really thought about the importance of organ donation, Jim Shoffstall's story might just inspire you.

Jim's spent his whole career as a lifesaving paramedic. But four years ago, his life was saved by a living donor who gave him a kidney.

The transplant at St. Louis University Hospital transformed his life.

He was back to work full-time as a paramedic for ARCH Air Medical Services in just a mere 10 weeks, and playing softball for the church team in four months.
