PEOPLE magazine is reporting that STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION cast member LeVar Burton is currently recovering after having given up one of his kidneys to his ailing mother, Erma. The choice was made when it seemed the odds were against her getting a kidney through the normal procedural channels.
Burton's mother's health is said to have drastically improved after the operation. Burton is also said to be making a swift recovery.
We wish both of them good health.
