A family in Cape Cod is feeling especially thankful this Thanksgiving - after a police officer 140 miles away from their home saved their baby's life.
Sloan St. James was 4-months-old when her parents, Sarah and Chris, noticed something wasn't quite right.
"We started to notice her jaundice wasn't going away," Sarah St. James said. "And she started to develop a bigger belly. We called it her little Buddha belly."
After a trip to Boston Children's Hospital, Sloan was diagnosed with stage four liver failure - and needed an immediate transplant.
Enter Lt. Steven Tenney, an officer in Keene, New Hampshire.
He heard about Sloan's story on Facebook through his sister-in-law - and read about the family searching for a potential donor.
After a week of tests, they found out Lt. Tenney was a perfect match.
"I was grateful, nervous, and excited," Lt. Tenney said. "I hadn't been to a doctor in probably 10 years. I've never had a surgery or anything like that."
He had never met Sloan, but he knew it was the right thing to do.
