The "in sickness and in health" portion of a couples' vows isn't usually intended for the best man, but following surgery this month Leanne Stefanovic has her husband's best friend to thank for her health. After being diagnosed with kidney failure in 2007, Stefanovic finally ended her nine hours a day on dialysis when Stuart Kilgannon, the best man at her wedding in Cyprus last year, donated one of his kidneys. Stefanovic's husband and other family members had all been tested, but only Kilgannon was a perfect match. "I feel normal again," Stefanovic told the Daily Mail. "I have got a lot to thank Stuart for." —Phillip B. Crook
