"I sat her down and said 'I have some really bad news,'" Cojo remembers. "The first thing, within 4.3 seconds, she said, 'I would give you a kidney in a second.' And she also said the most beautiful thing I could ever hear in my life: 'We'll get through this.' And when I heard that, I knew I was going to be okay. Honestly, I knew that I had support. She helped me through every big decision—telling my parents, telling work. She was my strength; she was my absolute rock."
