Kentucky Priest, Rev. James Sichko from Saint Mark Catholic Church in Richmond, Kentucky, is revealing that he once was willing to donate his own organ to singer, Natalie Cole after developing a bond with her.
“Sichko said he secretly contacted Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles to see if it were possible for him to donate a kidney to an ailing Cole,” according to a Lexington Herald Leader report. “She later got a match from a different donor.”
The pair developed a friendship after Cole performed during a celebrity concert at his church in 2007 and then later in 2009. The priest said she left a lasting impression on both him and his parishioners.
