Woman gives man her kidney, he returns favor, gives her salon

Acia Williams gave the gift of life for Chet Bennett, now Bennett is returning the favor to one of his employees.

Bennett was in need of a kidney transplant after being on dialysis for over a year. Willams found out she was a match and gave her kidney to the man who owned the hair salon in which she managed last April, WJLA reported.

Bennett actually owns a beauty college and several salons.

He had a surprise for Williams, WRC reported.

This week, Willams and Bennett cut the ribbon on a new salon in Washington, D.C., "A new Image by Acia", WRC reported.

Bennett gave Williams the business, fulfilling a dream of hers, as a thank you for saving his life, WJLA reported.
