MANCHESTER, N.H. (January 3, 2016) — A New Hampshire man found his perfect match in more ways than one when he first met his girlfriend on a golf course last summer.

Forty-nine-year-old Jack Simard of Manchester is slated for his second kidney transplant around Valentine’s Day and the donor is his girlfriend, Michelle LaBranche.

WMUR-TV reports the two avid golfers met at Stonebridge Country Club in Goffstown and fell in love. When LaBranche found out Simard was seeking a kidney donor, she tested to see if she was eligible without telling him.

Doctors were surprised that her kidneys turned out to be compatible.

Simard’s first kidney transplant was 19 years ago. His sister was the donor.

LaBranche says Simard is her future, and she wants to help him have a healthy life.
