An eight-year-old boy was on the waiting list for a life-saving liver transplant. After weeks, and weeks, someone stepped up – it was a nurse.

Brayden Auten was admitted to Milwaukee Childrens Hospital, in Wisconsin, with liver failure on April 26 this year.

In May, Grace Van Den Heuvel – Braydens auntie and organiser of his GoFundMe page – wrote that his condition was considered to be stable, but slowly deteriorating.

Braydens parents, Ruth and James Auten, said they bawled their eyes out when they found out that their son needed a partial liver transplant.

As reported by the New York Post, Ruth said: We didnt think it was going to get that far.

Despite being flooded with responses after posting online looking for a donor, the Autens couldnt find a match.

Happy birthday Brayden!! It sure it a special one! Its one we almost didnt have and Im forever thankful for these moments! I will never take these for granted again!

James told the New York Post: Were waiting there and just watching him get sicker. It was tough.

But then, we had the miracle, Cami shows up, James added.

On May 19, a post on the GoFundMe page read: Today we want to thank the anonymous donor who shared their liver with Brayden. We are thankful for the sacrifice you made so Brayden has a chance to live and to share his love with others.

It wasnt until just over a week later than Brayden met his hero.

Brayden got to meet his miracle today!!! Thank you Cami Loritz for coming to visit him!! And thank you again for…
